A weeks holiday in Caernarfon, North Wales with the family provided the opportunity for some walking in the Snowdonia National Park. Snowdon at 1085m with plenty of different routes to choose from was the obvious choice for a family walk, and the Llanberis Path which leaves Llanberis and follows the course of the mountain railway all the way to the summit station.

Leaving the road the sign identifies the start of the walk, no navigational problems as the path was clear all the way to the summit.

This is Halfway House, a quick refreshment stop before we continued on our walk

As we gained altitude the views became even more expansive, the path also became a little steeper.

Higher still and one of many trains passing. The Llanberris Pass over to the right

Nearing the summit we meet the top of two other routes up Snowdon. The Miners Track whick you can see following the outline of the lakes and the Pyg Track which is about a third of the way up the hillside. For those with an adventurous streak another route, Crob Cogh, follown the ridge on the left hand side of this photograph.

The summit comes into view, as does the cloud

From the summit as the mist lifted long enough to see down to the ridge of Y Lliwedd. It looks like an interesting way down.

Well on the way back now as another train makes its way up to the summit which now holds on to the low cloud.

Thanks for visiting....
