I’ve been feeling a little frustrated over the last ten days. I spent the previous week in a holiday cottage in Eryri with some excursions to the Carneddau foothills only to be flattened by gale-force winds and saturated by driving rain and hail. Since my return, the wind has dropped and the sky is clear […]
I wrote about the significance of HTLGI in my Christmas Blog series on sacred places two years ago. Then I was anticipating the 2020 festival but a couple of months later we were in lockdown and the Festival went online. I enjoyed that but it wasn’t the same. Today I was reminded of the pleasure […]
For the last two weekends, I’ve been walking the moors above Merthyr Tydfil. It is a landscape formed by geology and people over the ages. There are multiple Bronze Age burial mounts on most summits and the whole area is dotted with the ruins of stone build sheepfolds and small substance farms long since abandoned. […]
In my last post on the value of walking, and my Wainwright quest in particular, I was two days into what I hoped would be the final eight days of said quest and if achieved I would have made it in 39 days. As things panned out the final set of walks were pretty heavy […]
You see a lot of mountain shots in posts here, in part because I spent as much time as I can hiking and carting around a full frame Nikon camera (although today’s picture is from the iPhone. I took it yesterday from the summit of The Nab, my tenth Wainwright coming to the end […]
I grew up in and around the hills of North Wales, walking most weekends when were were not dinghy sailing. Rather than a birthday party when I was young I managed to persuade my parents to book a caravan in Snowdonia and took a couple of friends. The mountains are, to use the language of […]
One of my favorite walks in the Black Mountains is the ascent of the Cat’s Back followed by transit over Hay Bluff and Twmpa then down the long ridge of Darren Lwyd to Capel-y-Ffin. From there the path heads down the Vale of Ewyas before striking up an initially muddy slope before ascending over the […]
One of my best memories from the year I turned my back on Diabetes is the walk I did after a fresh snowfall in the sunshine on the Camarthen Fan as the year was coming to its end. The photographs used here come from that walk in which I linked on the tops finally returning […]
I’ve been occupied by and with COVID now for more months that I care to think about and the blog has been sadly neglected. Zoom has achieved a level of intimacy with my life that I wish to break and the lack of real human contact and audiences is stressful. Notonly that time is simply […]
