Walking up the back – Mount Snowdon

Snowdonia

We walked up the back of Snowdon & in this particular picture we took a moment to look back and admire the stunning scenery behind us; it’s a super sunny day and there’s no rain in sight [for real!]. Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales and has previously been described as *probably the busiest*. You’re never quite alone walking up on any of the well-known paths to reach the summit which boasts some of the best views in Britain.

For the less energetic ones there’s the Snowdon Mountain Railway which brings you [almost] directly to the new cafe they built on the summit which is officially Britain’s highest water hole. Oh, and the Olympic flame came here too, when mountaineer Sir Chris Bonnington carried it up in May 2012.
