Ozzys First Mountain 30 th July 2020

 Today,  now Ozzy is almost a year old  I am going to take him up his first mountain summit,  as with Molly it will be fitting that it is the same that she did  Y-Garn in the Ogwen valley in  Snowdonia. HERE

Having Parked along Llyn Ogwen and walked along to the white cottages , the start of the walk up to Llyn Idwal.     The mountain path goes through this rock gorge behind the visitor centre .

                                                       Ozzy jumped the style no problem .

I will keep him on the lead up here , there are sheep and Mountain Goats,  and he may jump of a sheer drop also.

                             Looking down Ogwen valley, Cym Idwal is on the right

                                                The Glyders looking very atmospheric.

Onwards and upwards , its a fairly easy path most of the way until the steeper scree section which is always very slippery underfoot.

                                                                    Treat time for Ozzy 

                                       Pen-y-ole-wen on the left with Llyn Ogwen on the right.

                                               Haha     wonder what he is thinking right now!

Looking down from the scree section at Llyn Ogwen on the left ,  Cym Idwal in the middle , Tryfan over to the right ,  it is easier going up than down.  All the rock slides under your feet.  its actually easiest in the snow :)

                  Cairn on the final slope to the summit , the Snowdon range in the background.

                                                                          Made it!    

Great view from up here ,   its quite busy up here with 5 others at the summit.    I guess Snowdon will be absolutely rammed with people today!

                                         Posing on his first Summit , Well done Ozzy 


                                              Tryfan and the Glyders over to the right corner 

                              Panorama Pen-yr-ole-wen , Tryfan and Glyder Fach

                                             Cairn stones with Snowdon range behind

                                                    The path towards Glyder Fawr 

                              Time to head back down now past a cairn near to top of the scree

                                                                    A last look Ozzy 

After descending the scree , which was extremely slippery , i look back to where we have just come from  , it will be covered in snow the next time we come up here hopefully.

                                                                          Final image 

A great day in Snowdonia  , hopefully wont be too long before another adventure here...........  Covid dependant
