Welsh1000 Walk – Llanrhystud to Furnace

My Coast Path capers all started when I signed up to do the Welsh1000 Walk, a charity event to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Moelwyn Mountains with Morgan

Morgan and I had a lovely day in the Moelwyn Mountains on Thursday. We had our sights on the final feeder cache for the Gwyddno Mountain Challenge geocache.
