We found snow!!!
We’ve just returned from an amazing walk up Pen Y Fan! The best part was that we had snow at the top of the mountain!
My daughter has been watching the news reports, praying that we might get some snow in Wales. As we drove around bend in the road to Storey Arms in Brecon, she let out a huge squeal as she could see snow on the top of Pen Y Fan!!
We met some friends who’d never walked up Pen Y Fan, so it was very special to be able to take them up, in these beautiful conditions.
The start of our walk was slow and steady, but everyone was so in awe of the clear blue skies and beautiful walking conditions of the day.
As we got to Corn Ddu, (the first peak), the layers and extra jumpers went on as the wind picked up. The girls were still determined to reach the top.
After taking it slowly and steadily on the uphill path, (due to the ice), the girls had smiles when they saw the top of the mountain, and the crowds of people milling around waiting for their picture to be taken.
After a brief stop for a lunch of the “ever popular” chicken noodle soup, we posed for our ” summit picture”.
Over to Corn Ddu and down the rocky path, we started our descent with lots of happy chatter. We were all full of the Christmas feeling due to the weather, and the fact that we were, at last, out in the snow!!
It was a lovely day out, and it’s made the Christmas holidays a little bit more special for us.
