Cym Idwal nov 23 rd 2013

                                                    A day in Snowdonia, but no snow :( 
Today i am taking Jan up to Cym Idwal , a place she has not been before.
Arriving at Idwal cottages the sky was blue, sun lighting up the snow capped Y-Garn  but i don't think it will last all day unfortunately.  we start walking up to the bridge , where i shoot this image

Jan with Chester on the bridge , we are going to take the waterfall path on the left of this image.

Walking up towards Cym Idwal following the stream i always shoot these waterfalls, always different every time i come up here.

Mollster and Chester do some posing for the camera with snow capped Y-Garn in the background, which was Molsters first ever summit climb last year in the snow  :)   HERE

                                Looking back towards Pen-yr-ole -wen in the shade :(

Arriving at Idwal its getting quite gloomy over the devils kitchen , never mind, we are going to climb up the Y-Garn path just to get a little height for a few photos after walking around the lake.

                                                             yes Mol   through the gate

                        Posing again Mol  , and then  together :)   yes Jan had a treat for them  lol

its like a mirror today, if only we had got up here half hour earlier when we had blue sky!  Arghhh

               having climbed up the steep path i get the image i wanted of the "Terrible Twosome"

                                                  back down to Idwal now ..............

                                   around the lake we walk , looking at Tryfan over the lake.

 Pen-yr-ole-wen on the left ,  i always spell this wrong   lol    a bit more blue sky appearing again at last

the path splits , we take the low path around the top end of Idwal to join the path coming back down from the "Kitchen"

                      makes a change to have calm conditions up here, very rare occurrence :)

                    cloud has built up again quickly , always changing up here in Snowdonia

the nice path that goes almost right around the lake , it can get very busy up here on a summers day

                                                the path back down to the Idwal cottages

                                                     one last pose for the Mollster :)

                             back down at the bottom, they both jump up on the wall :)

                                          the end of a good day walking in Snowdonia
