umbrellas at the ready
Within 30 minutes of starting our hike up Tryfan from near the Ogwen cottage – the rain put in an appearance. No real suprise. For me the suprise was the back and white spotted umbrella that arrived to help keep the rain off. I had to chuckle. Surely only the English would take an umbrella as rain protection up a mountain when wearing high tech water repellant, goretex, clothing.
Here we see the happy hikers taking a short rest break in the rain, accompanied by the cheerful umbrella.
