Atop Snowdon

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.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

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

  2. 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!

  3. Ashley,

    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.
