Caernarfon Refelections

Home again, briefly, from my travels. The holiday in Caernarfon started with mixed weather plagued largely with a low cloud base and strong north-easterly winds. This restricted walking in the first few days and meant that I had to stay at fairly low level. Thankfully, the only rainy day was the Sunday in the middle of the holiday on which I normally take a rest from walking so it didn’t spoil things too much. The weather improved considerably in the second week and the holiday ended with 3 consecutive mountain climbs (Tryfan, Snowdon & Moel Siobad) with a total ascent of 7,550ft. Needless to say, I was pretty tired after this and used my last full day in Caernarfon for recovery prior to a 6 hour drive home. The totals for the holiday were 45 miles and 11,500ft, bringing the totals for the season to 185 miles & 31,000ft.
