... pre-wrap; background-color: rgb(219, 237, 254);">After a brief but really useful stop over at the Info centre, we headed to our accommodation where our experiences of the Welsh again left us confused, being told, as if it were the most obvious thing in the world, that check-in wasn't until 3. We headed out on a walk instead, to Swallow Falls, which followed a river through mossy forests and paddocks of sheep in what was the second beautiful walk in as many days. We passed ...
... the green valleys below, and enjoyed seeing the rock ruins and slate fences left from a previous 1800's home in the foothills of Mt. Snowdon. The working farm nearby is managed by the National Trust, and a steady stream of hikers passed by Welsh sheep and cattle that couldn't be bothered to stop grazing for long.
