Day 5 - Corris Mines, Rhaeadr Pistyll



Towards Rhaeadr Dolgoch.




Rhaeadr Dolgoch.


Caving for beginners.








Tal-y-llyn, where the sleepers lie in Susan Cooper's The Grey King. (Fire on the mountain, shall find the harp of gold; Played to wake the sleepers, Oldest of the old;), This book series may or may not have significantly spurred my love for all things Welsh.


Welsh signs come in Welsh first and English second, and the further north you get, the shorter these English translations get, until they're gone entirely.






Art carved from the former tallest tree in Wales, a Douglas Fir close to Lake Vyrnwy.




Lake Vyrnwy. I'd like to go diving there, as the village was flooded after the dam was built.


Pistyll Rhaeadr, the highest single-drop waterfall in Wales, I think.








Driving in Wales - not for the faint-hearted. Right behind that flimsy fence, the road drops hundreds of meters into a valley.


Again, the views make up for it.
