Moel Arthur

Moel Arthur to Pennycloddiau and back. This time in the dry so the return track was passable and not a quagmire like last time. Very cloudy to begin with but brightened up a lot on the way back.

The slope on the other side of Moel Arthur is still as steep as ever!

The hills were covered in heather and gorse.

The view from the summit was a lot clearer than usual, even with all the cloud.

Helicopter that buzzed us from over the hill

A helicopter was spraying bracken, flying back and forth across the valley, sometimes flying right overhead.
