Day 8: Llangadfan – Llanwddyn

Day 7 | Glyndwr’s Way | Day 9

The campsite at Llangadfan was beside a river and the temperature obviously dropped over night. We awoke to frosty tents and frozen socks where they'd been hung in the porches to air!

Lots of forestry on this day. I love walking through trees anyway, and in the dappled sunlight it was particularly lovely, listening to the birds sing. Birds that weren't skylarks, for a change!

Pick a path, any path...

First glimpses of Lake Vyrnwy and its 19th century dam

The lake was created to provide water to Liverpool. With its crenallations, Vyrnwy dam is far more picturesque than the one at Clywedog

Lake Vyrnwy and the straining tower. As the majority of the walk is through rolling green farmland, moorland and forest - water, whether river, stream or lake, is always a welcome change in the landscape

Sunset over the lake from the restaurant balcony. Several other people in there had the same idea, and must have been surreptitiously watching the sun's descent for that one, picture-perfect moment. When it came, I jumped up from the table and dashed onto the balcony to get the shot, and I certainly wasn't the only one!
