Saturday Walk: Otford

I had a wonderful morning on Sunday hiking up Pen Yr Ole Wen in the Ogwen Valley in Snowdonia.

It was beautiful sunny weather in good visibility until I got to around 2,500 ft and then all hell broke loose. It got really dark, the wind whipped up and I was getting shot blasted with pea size hail driving into my face.

Given that I was on my own, there was thunder and lightening, the only way back down was down a steep snow filled gully and my footprints were already filling up I decided that discretion was the better part of valour and came back down.

I forgot my camera but, as you can see from these photos taken with my phone on the way back down, it was great fun!
