My first day of my second Christmas/New Year walking trip to Snowdonia. And as usual my warm up walk is from Beddgelert, where I stay, up to Mynydd Sygyn
I'd been very unwell for a few weeks, so took it slowly on the snowy and icy rocks of the steep climb.
Beddgelert below me on a raw winter's day.
I count this hill as being in the Moelwyns, (others do as well), and I was to do all my walking of this
trip in these lovely mountains and hills.
A last glimpse of Beddgelert with the Nantlle ridge on the skyline.
Peace and quiet heading NE along the top after Mynydd Sygyn.
On the descent to the old Copper mine at Sygun.
Back along the riverside to Beddgelert.
