Today the weather forecast promised lashing rain and gale force winds and so the boys and I decided to stay low and do some micro navigation practise. We walked up the Watkin path on Snowdon and spent the day practising micro navigation skills for poor visibility off the path. We were without Alan who hurt his ankle at the end of the day yesterday. The weather was not quite as wet as forecast and we were nicely sheltered in the Cwm and so the day worked well. We bumped into the farmer bringing his sheep down for the winter in readiness for the arrival of the snow - there was no obvious snowfall this morning though.
