Outdoor Discoveries

What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you for coming!

11th July 2007

I am continuing to make good use of my new scanner and photos from an outing to Harlech last December have finally made their appearance in the Snowdonia section of the online gallery. What I saw of the wildness of the countryside that day has caused me to make one return already. However, day trips up here don’t seem to do it the justice that it demands (for me , they involve a lengthy train journey that limits the length of my stay) so the prospect of a spending a few days in the area to sample more of its delights has occurred to me. I must admit that I haven’t developed it very far but I have considered making Porthmadog my base, an option that allows exploration of Eifionydd as well but the Rhinogs should keep me occupied in any event. In fact, it might even be an idea for a summer break when the weather offers such an opportunity.
