  1. My husband hiked in wales all the time when he was growing up, and when we lived in the U.K. we spent many weekends exploring North Wales.

    Thanks for sharing the pic.

    • Thanks for the comment Deb. Wales is a beautiful country and wonderful for hiking with historical sites just about everywhere you go. There is also a desolate, sombre beauty in the mining towns and mist filled valleys.
