Cadair Idris attempt

Foiled by clouds!

Wednesday was the best weather day so we headed over to Snowdonia to go up Cadair Idris by the Mynffordd path. I've done this was a couple of times before, once with Vicky but it was new to Chavaunne. We climbed up to Llyn Cau and ate lunch overlooking the lake hoping the clouds on the mountain tops would lift. We climbed higher and were contemplating the final ascent of Craig Cwm Amarch when the cloud got lower so since we already had good views & I knew how hard to find the path beyond the summits was we turned back & the cloud followed us down for some way before turning into rain! Lots of inappropriately clothed walkers about though.... We got down before the cafe closed & treated ourselves to tea & cake whilst we dried off. As our walk was shortened we didn't stop in Dolgellau for supper but went home & changed into clean clothes before heading to a local pub for supper (well, actually 2 as the first we tried was shut up!)
