I sometimes question whether it’s worth the effort of getting out, but days like this are an amazing reminder of why all the hassle is definitely worthwhile.

Mountains to Myself

Written by Haydn Williams

Work travel and plenty of annual leave meant I escaped back to the hills on Tuesday afternoon. I spent a wonderful three hours on the Carneddau, at one point accompanied by the police helicopter, coastguard helicopter and an RAF Hawk, but mostly in complete silence and with the range to myself. I sometimes question whether it’s worth the effort of getting out, particularly when conditions aren’t great, but days like this are an amazing reminder of why all the hassle is definitely worthwhile.
