Once we've washed our gear, made small repairs, re-proofed our ponchos and dubbened our walking boots, then I guess the threemenonawalk team will get together over a beer at some point and discuss next year's plans. Not sure on the destination yet, although I suspect the Wicklow Mountains south of Dublin and the Scottish Highlands will both be contenders - we'll just have to wait and see. Wherever we decide to spend a week I'm sure it will be another cracker and I know that we'll all enjoy a full year ahead of training walks and possibly the odd camping weekend in the mountains.
Enjoy the photos and please don't hesitate to drop us a line via the blog if you'd like more information on any of the walks we've covered on the blog over the years.

"In the 13th century Llewelyn, prince of North Wales, had a palace at Beddgelert. One day he went hunting without Gelert, ‘The Faithful Hound’, who was unaccountably absent.
On Llewelyn's return the truant, stained and smeared with blood, joyfully sprang to meet his master. The prince alarmed hastened to find his son, and saw the infant's cot empty, the bedclothes and floor covered with blood.
The frantic father plunged his sword into the hound's side, thinking it had killed his heir. The dog's dying yell was answered by a child's cry.
Llewelyn searched and discovered his boy unharmed, but nearby lay the body of a mighty wolf which Gelert had slain. The prince filled with remorse is said never to have smiled again. He buried Gelert here".
