Milan Ilnyckyj in Wales

Keeping my hat on was a constant challenge, given the lack of a chin-strip and the strong winds.

Nature reserve in Wales

Because the winds on the second day prevented us from going up any peaks, we visited this nature reserve instead. It was nice to see some trees.

Cliffside view, Snowdonia

In the reserve, some of us climbed along a steep hillside to see a large waterfall from above. We also got some nice views of the valley below and the seashore.

Rock in Wales

The Welsh landscape is dominated by bare rock, separated by grassy sections. Often, you see veins of quartz in the shale that look like snow, from a distance.

My beloved Wales…Glad you had a good time in the country where I did my undergraduate degree.

I remember the very pale lichens added to the snow effect. I love the photos.

Alex,

It was a really nice place to explore and, as always, going with the Walking Club meant that I met some interesting people. Next term, I am hoping to go to the Lake District with them.

I was awfully glad for the nature reserve on the second day. Barring photos of fog and rock, the first didn’t offer much artistic variety.
