Brecon wander

Went up the Brecon beacons yesterday.  Out into the bits people don’t tend to go and just hiked around a bit with the dog.  It was pretty cold, then hot, then windy then not. Hey im a poet! We didn’t follow the paths mainly as there weren’t any. Its quite liberating and definitely fun to just go where you please. This did mean we spent a few hours or so falling in bogs, marshes and swamps (we havnt worked out which is which yet) but wet feet is a given these days.  Plus Tilly the dog loved every minute of it even if she couldnt see over the grass much of the time I guess.

Pro tip – Park the car by a big obvious mountain like this one so you dont lose it
Technically we should have been over there but I cannot tell a lie – my directions are shit
Standing stone doing what it does best
Waterfall – slightly on the wonk
Frozen “waterfall” / trickle
Is that the mountain by the car? Oh …
Look I CAN take photos – Tilly in her snazzy coat
Ok we put the dog with short legs on the rock for a photo shoot, she didnt leap there – tiny legs and all that. Though she did exceptionally well seeing as its not really short dog terrain
Reservoir points to car (backup in case of loss of mountain)
“Over there is bog…. over there is marsh ….. over there is swamp” ( I fell in most of them)
