The big thaw has well & truly set in down in Snowdonia, so today I thought I would go for a walk on my local hills, The Clwyds. Headed for a brisk walk up Moel Famau (1818ft), which is the highest in the range. There was still tonnes of snow, in some places 3 or 4 feet deep, but bizzarely at the summit by the Jubilee Tower it was pretty much bare. Definetly one of my very favourite places to be.
