Cancelled trains meant that I couldn't get to work at the Outdoors Show in London last weekend. My consolation prize came in the way of a last minute plan to join my friends from North West Sea Kayakers for land based weekend in the hills of Snowdonia.
ummit of Moel Cynghorion we got battered by icy winds and peppered with spindrift. Being well wrapped up meant that this was far from uncomfortable and actually an altogether stimulating experience.
On Sunday I took my first tour of the Llanberis slate quarries. Old buildings with abandoned winding gear punctuate steep walks and scrambles through oak woodland trough to the open moors above.
