I managed to grab a couple of days off last week so I decided to visit the Brecon Beacons. In all my years of walking this was the first time I had walked in this National Park. Had a good day over on the Black Mountains and hardly passed another walker. The following day Pen Y Fan had to be climbed. It was real bun fight in the car park to find a space, and even early in the morning there was a long snake of people winding their way up the hill. Still the sun shone despite a cold wind, but on both days I had stunning views.
This week I have been out with a family climbing followed by two days in the office. Tomorrow I am again climbing with another family. I managed to get down near Vixen Tor today to take some pictures for some training handouts. Pity it is now out of bounds to climbers. Think I have some pictures of me climbing it years ago somewhere at home. I will see if I can find them and post them onto another blog at a later date.
