Started out from our caravan base in Bethesda. Ogwen bank caravan park, a bit run down, and no frill caravan, but perfect for what we needed. Forcast good, but maybe a bit damp in the morning clearing through later. After a long slog up we get to Pen Yr Ole Wen (in the mist)....Im sure the views are fantastic, but we couldnt tell.

Then the ridge through the peaks (in the mist), sometimes I wonder if its worth doing in visibility like this, but when you travel all this way, you cant waste a day.

Looks like the ridge on a fine day would be quite the view
