#50.PEN-Y-GAER HILL FORT.2-10-11.

In complete contrast to yesterday's weather it was a dismal day when we woke up and looked out the bedroom window.After breakfast we checked out and headed down the Conwy Valley to walk up Pen-y-Gaer.We parked in Llanbedr-y-Cennin and walked up the lane heading for Bwlch y Gaer.below is our first glimpse of Pen-y-Gaer.

And Penygadair below.

On reaching the bwlch Julie sat on the bench taking in the wonderful view's whilst i looked for and found the nearby geo-cache.Below,the hill fort from the bwlch.

We crossed the stile over the stone wall and the view's really opened up for us,Tal y Fan.

Looking down Cwm Eigiau.


The hill fort's portal.

The summit cairn.

Walking back down the lane we stopped to pick some sloe berries for our gin and vodka.

Today we walked 4 miles with 1,150 feet of ascent.
