Walk: Moel Famau

K. and I decided to get out of the house for a short walk this morning.  After the usual half-hearted debate about a destination, we chose one I've wanted to do for a long time: Moel Famau in daylight.

As previously explained, it's been a family tradition since the 1980s to see in each New Year at summit of the highest of the Clwydian Hills (554 m, or 1,818' asl), so the route is very familiar – but only in near-complete darkness. It was good to see the same views, but as villages, woods, hills and valleys rather than groups and lines of lights.

It's a fairly easy route, ascending a mere ~205 m (670') from the car park at the highest point on the nearest road, to an excellent viewpoint, and only takes ~45 mins each way. I suppose this was also a particularly obvious day to go for a walk, but I was a little surprised that the car parks and paths were rather busy.

The weather wasn't great for photography: slightly hazy, with broken cloud providing odd patches of brilliant illumination and deep shadow. However, I did take a few publishable photos.
