Yr Wyddfa

Me, atop Mt. Snowden in 45 mph winds, in the rain, and with a temperature of 3 degrees Celsius. I was glad to finally make it to the top of the highest mountain in Wales (1,085 metres--about 3,500 feet, I think). The last time I tried, the path was closed with too much snow. Even more surprising is that after reaching the top, I met a kind Scottish gentleman who granted me access to the new restaurant that will open at the summit this summer. How bizarre to be brought into a clean, warm and dry building after hiking for two hours in the wet, rocky wilderness. What's more, it was equipped with wi-fi, and to prove it, here's a picture of my website being accessed on the summit of Mt. Snowden!
