We scrambled down into these old quarries in search of interesting minerals. We found tourmaline and the radioactive crystals whose name currently escapes me.
Looking across in the other direction from the quarry where the radioactive crystals are.
This shows the swampy area with the long coarse grass quite well. This was about at the point where I realised that I couldn't get across the valley at the end of the lake and would have to walk further up before I could cross the river.
This is one of the old slate fences, so typical of Blaenau Ffestiniog and other Welsh slate mining areas. I think it would be well worth another trip up here with the better camera and the tripod.
Water lilies on Llyn Cwmorthin. It was a bit misty on the tops, but I think this captures the atmosphere of the valley quite well.
