Lovely sunny day. The walk between Foel Cwm Sian Llwyd and Cyrniau Nod is not for the faint hearted. There is a sort of a path for part of the way, made mostly by sheep and wishful thinking, but the rest is deep heather and bogs. If it hadn't been a dry spring it would have been very trying. The rest of the walk is mostly on good paths, tracks and roads.
