Tryfan, Snowdonia

Tryfan is the 14th highest peak in Wales at 3010 feet.

I took this photo from the car as we were travelling along the A5 in the Ogwen Valley, part of the Nant Ffrancon Pass. The A5 Holyhead to London trunk road was re-engineered by Thomas Telford between 1810 and 1826.

  1. Hi Margaret,
    I just love the mountains of Wales and those are some great shots.
    We have friends who live up on the North coast, in Deganwy and on more than one occassion, we have taken the longer drive from Somerset, right up through Wales, from South to North. We do try to only take the journey this way, when the weather forecast is good, as we can always be assure of some fantastic scenery nearly all the way.

  2. Hi from North Carolina USA. Love your pictures, beautiful. I saw on GoodReads that you are reading Small Island. I am also. I started a very casual reading group on the site if you are interested called “read along with me:-)”
    Thanks for your post
