Dinorwig Slate Quarry & Llyn Peris, Snowdonia

Moody weather had ruined our plans to walk along the Miners track towards the lakes beneath Mount Snowdon.

We had a picnic in a lay-by staring through steamy, rain soaked car windows. Peering out down the valley and across to the waters of Llyn Peris below the Dinorwig Quarry.

A check of the GPS showed there was a path around the lake. We decided to risk the weather. We donned our boots and waterproofs and set off. As the turbulent weather moved off we were rewarded with a wonderful and unexpected walk.

Here’s some photos of the journey…
