    It looks nice, but it was an awful night. It was so boggy, my tent sank. Pegs wouldn't go in and rocks came hurtling past all night. I had to shovel the mountains of rotting Pony :poop: onto the Rat nest holes to stop at least a few hundred from getting out. No-one should camp there.

    It definitely wasn't Llloer near the crash site with views down the Ogwen valley either. :)

    And I'm back.......

    All the planning, fitness, health checks for your trip are all well and good.


    Make sure your relatives have one as well [​IMG]


    My Fathers heart attack ( minor according to Drs) almost caused mine when booking next day flights back from the USA.

    Still, I placed my feet on the start point.

    Photoshop would of been cheaper [​IMG]

    Hope your Dad will be all right and I hope you can go back to the AT.

    The arch at Amicola Falls State Park is one of my favourite AT clichés, do hope to get there one day. :)

    The closest stream to the right is the trail, under an inch of water flowing from the propper stream to the left.:biggrin:

    Out wandering in the rain in the driest time of year and nice to see the seasons have well and truly changed with this flowering.
    Looking forward (mainly) to what we get thrown next.
