Snowdon

Last weekend my Godmother and I tackled Snowdon in North Wales. To say the weather was bad would be an understatement! It was extremely windy, with rain and hail and fog. But that didn't stop us from reaching the summit, where, according to Google, there are incredible views.......but we didn't see them - did I mention the weather was bad?? Well, the fog near the top was so bad that we could barely see the edge of the trail and I climbed on hands and knees up the steps to the "official photo spot".
But we did it. We climbed a mountain and survived. Until the last hour of our climb, we did have good views - BREATHTAKING views. I had no idea that this area of Great Britain was so spectacular. If you can, take a visit. Happy Weekend y'all!

At the beginning




I am really good with directions...

The Mountain is behind the cloud. Promise.



Where the crazy awesome views are normally from...according to Google

At the top baby!
