I had got a very clear view of Moel Siabod as I descended Snowdon via the Miners Track the previous evening, (photo above). And had then planned to climb the Moel the next day! But it was still a surprise that my aching legs allowed me to get out of the car near Capel Curihg on the 27th to start the walk up to the top of the 872m mountain!
I sat for some time in a small stone shelter near the summit to remember someone who had been so precious to me for so many years, and whom I had lost exactly a year earlier. Then decided that, with cloud building up, it would be sensible to head back down.
