It was a mixed group consisting of 4 over-65's from the University of the Third Age group and 5 of G's A-level geology students. This worked surprisingly well considering the groups hadn't met before. There was one worrying moment when one of the elderly students collapsed feeling very faint, but to my huge relief, after sitting quietly, having and drink of tea and eating some of my jelly babies (for the sugar), he recovered and in fact completed the rest of the walk in fine form.
To our astonishment, as we walked along the ridge above the lake, we encountered this decorated tree, presumably left over from last Christmas.
Here are the students closely examining an interesting outcrop.
And finally, a shot showing a typical upland lake. Llyn Pen Moelyn with Cadair Idris in the background.
