So I decided to buy a card reader instead, and today I travelled to the nearest town that has a shop that stocks such things (20 miles away I'm afraid), bought one and once again I'm back!
The photo's I've posted here are ones that I would have posted on Saturday (but couldn't 'connect' of course) after I walked up Snowdon. On the mountain that day there was the annual Snowdon running race where people run to the top of the hill (about 3,500 feet) and back down again in little over an hour! I think the winning time was 1hr 08min and last was about 2hr 45min. I do a little running myself - but prefer the flat - maybe next year!On a sobering note one of the competitors actually dropped dead in this years race.The weather was it's usual 'poor summer' weather, we haven't had a good spell of weather since 2006, it was 17c at the bottom and 10c at the top with a howling gale and the summit covered in cloud.
There was of course the usual drizzle but it was very nice all the same. It took us 2hrs 15mins (with a 15min stop) to get up (the Rhyd Ddu path) and about 1hr 45mins to come down the same route.
