This trip was planned for August for a reason. I expected it to rain less. All my previous trips had been off-season, any months but summer months. This usually affected outdoor activity moistly. While I did still have rain this trip I was largely able to plan around it. Bottom line: mission accomplished.
What inspired me to care to do things outdoors?
Three grand features of the U.K. –
- Snowdon Mountain:
site of a climbing steam train and highest peak in England/Wales.
- Hadrians Wall:
an Roman wall built across northern England to ward off Scots.
- Ben Nevis:
the tallest mountain in all the U.K. in the Scottish Highlands.
My goals were to hike down #1, walk the length of #2 and climb #3.
That’s what I set out to do and that’s what I did.
Again, mission accomplished!
It was a great trip.by
