"Oh what big ears you've got!"
Possibly a breed of sheep called "Welsh Mules".
Friendly horses in the background.
Snowdonia from Mynydd Tryfan.
Looking towards mid-Wales.
descending the slopes of Mynydd Tryfan, on one of the few paths that we could find in this area!

Bright and sunny weather on the forecast and temperatures in the twenties. The lack of any significant breeze meant that at times it felt a little too warm for walking.
Once again, we decided to change the route slightly and decided to explore Mynydd Tryfan o the paths that we missed twelve months ago. We managed to find the path, well pretty close to it, this time and had lunch on the top of Mynydd Tryfan. The views towards Snowdonia from Mynydd Tryfan were superb, with Moel Siabod, the Snowdon Horseshoe and Tyfan being easily identified.
However we failed to find the path from Mynydd Tryfan through to Tan-Tryfan, and ended up on the road at the same point as planned on the original extension.
Once again we decided the best option was to head back to Llansannan on the shortest and easiest route possible - along the road.
Arriving back at car two of the group indulged in an ice-cream lolly, just what the driver needed to help cool down before setting off, it was almost more enjoyable that the pint of Lees that we had later at the Britannia Inn at Pentre Halkyn!
Birds seen or heard today included: House sparrow, Winter wren, Carrion crow, Barn swallow, Woodpigeon, Yellowhammer and Common buzzard.
