Snowdons Pyg track in the snow March 18th pt1

After heavy overnight snow fall in Snowdonia i drove up to the Pen-y-pass car park to take Molly along the PYG track to get some good photos from higher up .

The view towards Snowdon over the twin lakes is always superb.

  Upon reaching the top of the pass ,there was a good covering of snow in the car park which was quite busy for a monday. we are going to take the PYG track which is the higher path heading up Snowdon.  looking down the Lanberis pass , Molly poses for a pic :)

Molly is having a great time in the snow, rolling and sticking her head right in the deep snow :)

               the views are stunning today, snow really makes a landscape more interesting .

                                       Moll is leading the way, climbing steadily upwards.

                                more fun in the snow trying to sledge!  uphill mol????  strange dog!

looking back down to the car park, weather not good in that direction, but blue sky in front for now.

i just love the snowy landscape, much more interesting than a summers day in the mountains, we have walked a long way already , must keep going , really enjoying today already :D

                                                  Mollster is thinking..................................

                                  "come on, its this way!   you stop too much taking photos "

                                                            "Crib Goch" ahead of us

Heading to the steeper section the snow is really deep, the sun is lighting up the mounds and contours which looks amazing. so i am taking loads images , here are a few of them.

                                            this is my fav image, the sun is breaking through now

       Having reached the top of this section ,i have to get moll to jump over a stile, she has not tried before. once over we get the first glimpse looking down on Llyn Llydaw

                         Molly surveying the view, fantastic today with Snowdon shrouded in cloud.

this path is a nice level walk for a long way , although its quite narrow and have to be very careful in this snow. Mol is loving running in the snow up on the steep slopes   haha

                                                    A Panorama image , view LARGE

     Mol having fun, a mini avalanche occurred  here , a large snowball formed in centre of image!

                                               Lets "pose" again shall i , molly says :) 
              the sun is out now and its feeling quite warm, the suns glare of the snow is blinding!

                                            she just cant help herself , such a show off!

                                     the journey continues in part 2 , far too many images lol

    Molly is a show-off but looks so lovely she deserves to be!
    The snow looks like marshmallow...
