For me personally it has been nearly 20 years since I walked up Snowdon, (I was 14 on a family adventure holiday in North Wales). I am very excited about going back to see the stunning views of the National Park.
First things first, it is great to be back walking with the team again this year, and despite missing out on Snowdonia last year, we have made the decision to go back again this year. I am really looking forward to this years walk and getting back onto the blog to post about our ventures.
Please keep posted for updates of our progress.
"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".
