Stunning scenery

 We decided on a trip through Snowdonia today.It is only an hour away from us and what stunning scenery awaited us.This is by Plas y Brenin.The lake that usually is full of canoeists was frozen.Snowdon can be seen in the distance.
 Closer to Snowdon even more spectacular.The roads were deserted but clear of snow and ice.
I took this through the windscreen on the way down through to Llanberis.We had just come past the car park where you park for Snowdon and it was full so there must have been some hardy souls who were attempting the climb!
We have had 7 inches of snow here in Mold and most of it is still here.More is expected in the next 24 hours.We had stopped in Betws y Coed for a coffee on the way and there was no snow there.
After our Snowdonia drive we went on to Anglesey to Beaumaris for lunch.We finish the day off with our Wine Appreciation group this evening,always a great event,lots of laughter as well as cheese and wine.


  1. Beautiful scenery! We had a bit of snow fun here, too. But our adventure was pretty much confined to the kitchen :o)

  2. Gorgeous photos, thanks for taking us along.

  3. Gorgeous photos and lovely places. We parked in Llanberis last June, after we'd driven down the pass, and went up Snowdon on the train:)

  4. Lovely pictures. I haven't been to Snowdonia since I was a child.

    We had one day of snow and then the lot disappeared. In our corner of Kent we very rarely get the extreme weather conditions that everyone else seems to get. I've probably jinxed it now and we'll get another hurricane.

  5. I think the view there is always stunning but with the snow and the blue sky it's breathtaking x

  6. The majesty of North Wales ... I never cease to marvel at it ... that was my kind of drive!

    Thank you for the get well wishes :)

  7. Deee..ightful! Love snow photos and lovely scenery especially when it's hot here.
