Back to our week in Snowdonia earlier this month, and after our exertions with our friends on the Snowdon Horseshoe the previous day we checked out of the beautiful B&B in Beddgelert and started the trek up Moel Hebog which stands proud overlooking this beautiful little village. Sharon assures me that Moel Hebog translates to 'Hill of the Hawk..... but no signs of any hawks that day. But after a grey start it was a lovely, long plod up to the top, its a lot bigger than it actually looks!! We had intended then to go on and complete the neighbouring mountains of Moel Yr Ogof and Moel Lefn, but by the time we had reached Moel Yr Ogof time was against us and it was a long walk back to Beddgelert, so we descended and got back into Beddgelert in time for fish and chips, before heading off to Cae Du camp site just outside the village, to pitch our tent, we stayed here for the next few nights, a lovely site, the one downside the dam midges in the evening...... more from our travels to follow, in the meantime a few snaps from this adventure, as usual your comments are most welcome.

The centre of Beddgelert, we both just love this little village
Tent pitched, Sharons boots make great bottle holders, I sit back and watch her painting the view to Yr Arran behind the site, I think its superb, see it on her site HERE
The sun goes down on Moel Hebog, what a view from our tent....... the day after we had a day off from walking and visited the little Italian style village of Portmeirion.... come back and see the report soon
