My Christmas Journey into Wales 2018 AD.

Dull and miserable weather this year. I decided to skip the North and go further into Mid Wales instead for variety. It started out very misty and a bit wet, but cleared up somewhat later.

 
This is not actually Lake Vrnwy from where I start, but on the way to Hirnant.
I have developed a passion for fir trees, I'd love to live long enough to see some of mine grow that tall.
Generally what the morning was like, looking over the Berwyns
