Y Llethr, Rhinog Fawr & Llyn Bodlyn, Dyffryn Ardudwy, Gwynedd, Wales

Cadair Idris kept to its habit of wearing a cloudy cap on the day that this scene lifted my spirits along all the others like it. However, Diffwys, Moelfre, Y Llethr, Rhinog Fach and Rhinog Fawr left the clouds to take on the appearance of puffed-up pieces of cotton wool in the sky, making it a much more interesting sight. Though I may have been questioning the sense of continuing to the top of Diffwys with the end of a February afternoon in sight, the vistas sent gratitude my way as recompense for the effort. Some snow lay about as evidence of a colder winter than that to which we had become accustomed. Civilisation isn't far from here though that isn't how appears while you're out here. After all, that's how a day trip to Dyffryn Ardudwy to take in a Rhinog summit was feasible; it's always good that you can do this to free the human spirit in a world that would imprison it if allowed to do so.
