Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected ( Causeway)
On a rainy day, we found ourselves hiking laboriously in the mountains of Snowdonia, Wales.
My shoes were soaked, water penetrated my shoes, part of the skin on the feet has come off.
Gazing afar, we saw this beautiful lake of Llyn Llydaw.
Llyn Llydaw – 1,430 feet (440 m) high, 110 acres (45 ha) – lies in Cwm Dyli, Snowdon’s eastern cwm, and is one of Snowdonia’s deepest lakes, at up to 190 ft (58 m) deep.
There was clearly a connection down to and across the lake, in the form of a causeway.
On that gloomy day, we did hike down and across the lake, in the form of a causeway. A day always remembered.

This looks more like a geological picture for teaching about boulders or glazier erosion.
I have never thought of climbing the Snowdonia mountain in Wales, but on that rainy day in 1985, I did.
The picture was taken on the road when we were approaching the mountain site by car.
It was early Spring when we made our way up Snowdonia. Rain fell as we were laboring our way up the wet, narrow and steep mountain tracks.
After climbing halfway, my shoes were soaked with water and my feet were cold. Parts of the skin on my feet started to peel off.
The bad weather meant that I did not have many good pictures.
This photo brings back memories of an almost forgotten hiking.
