Ogwen Valley, Snowdonia

Take the A5 north from Bettws-y-coed, and you’ll find yourself driving along (imho) the single most beautiful stretch of road in all of Wales. Ogwen Valley lies to the east of the mountain passes of Snowdon itself, and is so popular with walkers and climbers that it has its own webcam setup by the local Mountain Rescue team to allow visitors to see what the conditions are like before setting off for a day in the mountains.

If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.

This photo was taken back in 2003, before I had geotagging enabled on my camera, so there’s a bit of guesswork as to exactly where along the A5 this particular shot was taken.
