The sleet and hail we had encountered on Moel Hebog the previous day had turned to snow overnight. Leaving a good covering on Snowdon and surrounding mountains as we drove to near Betws Garmon.
We soon descended below ths now line into a dull, wet and cold day. And arrived at the Snowdon Ranger Station just as a Welsh Highland Railway train passed. Even in normal weather the walk we had done would have been well worth doing. But the onset of early winter conditions with lying snow and, at times, blizzard condtions, really enhanced the experience!
