ASCENDING MOUNT SNOWDON | SNOWDONIA NATIONAL PARK, WALES

Mount Snowdon in the clouds
Was in the Snowdonia National Park the other week for Akoustik Anarkhy co-founder AC's stag do - a day of mountain ascending, rambling, swimming and generally checking out a very scenic part of the world. 

Various photos below...

Forecast - it was generally pretty good

At the summit...
...visibility could be described as low...
...though there was an intrepid sea gull...

**BONUS MOUNTAIN TRAIN PHOTO SPECIAL**

Although we didn't get it up or down, the Snowdon Mountain Railway looked very impressive as it sped past us on the route down.



 


 So that was that - Snowdon and the weather conquered, well worth a visit. 
If you're not feeling up for the climb you can always jump on the train and have a beer at the summit bar (quite a few were...) 

Penceument Decor
 Would definitely recommend a trip to the Penceument Tea Room, located at the foot of Snowdon as you enter the village of Betws-y-Coed.

Stopped by Llandudno beach on the way back for a quick swim, by which time the weather had turned to something approaching summer...
