Atop Snowdon


in The outdoors, Travel

This short clip was made when the Oxford University Walking Club reached the peak of Snowdon – the highest point in Wales – on March 10th, 2007. As you can see, we did not get a terribly good view for all of our upward marching.

Here is another short video, and some photos on Facebook. I will post some nicer versions here soon. For now, I need to prepare for my meeting with Dr. Hurrell tomorrow.

The peak of Yr Wyddfa is generally nested in the clouds, as befits the tallest point in England and Wales.

I feel your pain, bro. When I ascended Snaefellness, the mountain where Jules Verne located the opening in his journey to the center of the earth, it never offered a clear view. However the four hour hike up a less famous peak offered an amazing view. We even had a few near miss emergencies with boulders tumbling down after us on our descent. Nothing like hearing “watch Out!” in a chorus of scandinavian and germanic dialencts. Looks like you had a splendid time!

As always on Walking Club trips, the times were good. They are always chock full of scientists, engineers, and generally intriguing individuals. I hope to keep in touch with at least some of them.
