Bridge in nature reserve

Bridge in the nature reserve we visited on the second day. Because of the low altitude and protected status, there was far more vegetation there than elsewhere in Snowdonia.

Cabin in Snowdonia

View uphill to the ‘barn’ in which we stayed. Nearby was a small power plant, with turbines operated by water pressure. A long pipeline – resembling those for natural gas – ran down to it from a lake somewhere above us.

Many things described as barns are so because they are barn conversions – while sometimes the label is added for a rustic feel, looking at the picture it may well be an honest description.

They’re streams (or brooks) dammit, not creeks (in the UK anyway)!

Still loving the Welsh landscape photos.

Antonia,

You cannot tell from this photo, but the cabin was definitely built for its present purpose. There is even a special room near the side door in which to dry soggy gear.

What’s the problem with the term ‘creek?’ I have done a great deal of enjoyable canoeing in them.

Glad to hear you like the photos.

gorgeous…you dont know how jealous I am Milan. I really need to bond with mother nature again and get off the beaten path. It has been way too long!
