A Deadly Place To Walk

I hope you all had a great weekend. Welcome back to another week of my desktop wallpaper choices. As promised, I’m picking some more of my photos from last summer’s holiday in North Wales, and this week there isn’t really any other theme to connect them.

Mrs H still hasn’t stopped telling me off for taking this photo; that’s how dangerous it is to put yourself in the path of slate. As you can see in this shot, the slate comes right down to the edge of the road, and had it slipped whilst I was crouching there to take this shot, I’d have been cut to ribbons. According to Google, the last major landslide along this pass was in November 2000, and there’s no mention of the slate itself having moved as part of that landslide, so I reckon I was pretty safe.

For the MAMILs amongst you (that’s Middle-Aged Men In Lycra; cyclists!), the Horseshoe Pass used to feature in the Tour of Britain cycle race.
