A Cold Day in Snowdonia
It was a cold day in January. And I mean really cold. My husband suggested a trip to Mount Snowdon in Snowdonia National Park, Wales. He rarely makes trip suggestions, so I was eager to go anywhere he wanted to go. Little did I know just what I was getting myself into. We drove 3 hours to the town of Llanberis, were we stayed in a charming bed and breakfast at the foot of the mountain. The next morning, my husband decked me out in cold weather gear and we started up the Miners Track on the east side of the mountain. I was feeling fine as we winded our way through the valleys and lakes. But as soon as we hit our first ridge, I experienced some of the coldest weather of my life. The wind was relentless, and the lack of cloud cover didn’t help. After scrambling up the last bit to reach the summit, we were rewarded with a beautiful 360 degree view of the area. What a site! So although it was one of the coldest days in January, it was also one of the sunniest so the visibility was fantastic. Thanks to my hubby for pushing me up the mountain (sometimes literally).
