Into 2009 and with the icy cold spell continuing in Snowdonia I extended my stay there. With previous dire warnings about the incredibly boggy terrain up on the Moelwyns I decided that, with the ground up there frozen solid, it would be a good time to explore that area. So I parked in one of the many lay-bys on the main road after Nantgwynant, and set off.
