This also happened today:

  • 09:04 Breakfast. We're the only people under 60. At the door, 'hurry it up!' behind us. It's a little old man impersonating a spaniel, quite well.
  • 13:51 Only got hold of the guide book after the old slate works, too late to yell abort! on one of the interesting routes up Mount Snowdon. Scree!
  • 13:53 Have found all the views! Feasting on mini jaffa cakes and trying to spot an afanc in the reservoir. Clouds closing in, could get wet soon.
  • 14:53 Nearly at summit, sitting by the waystone in a raincloud in my waterproofs like a grumpy elf, steeling myself for the mountaintop crowds.
  • 15:27 Just saw a red-legged partridge on top of mount snowdon. Also about fifty-nine dogs and a liverpudlian in pedal pushers. Better her than me!
  • 16:29 In the cloud, no visibility. Unseen the train approaches engine noise through mist which becomes stream blows toward us gone with a whistle.
  • 17:04 Coming down the tourist trail. Ugg boots are the high heeled flipflops of Snowdonia.
  • 23:01 Light fading. Cold water falling from sky. Tired, hungry, footsore, sick of sky, sheep, mountains. Also (yay) in car heading back to hotel.

... I'll pass
Tell you what, though, the Watkins path really was quite an interesting way to go up the mountain...
