So what with it being half term we decided to start things off with a healthy walk up Moel Famau last Saturday. From our coastline home in Hoylake on the Wirral we could see that the vast majority of the snow had melted the prior week. As a slight aside, we had about as much snow as there is icing sugar on a sponge cake!
So, when we got to the car park at Moel Famau country park we were a little suprised to spot the odd patches of slushy snow. After a quick lunch in the car off we set off with the aim of walking up to the tower. Our young daughters were finding the snow covered path (there was a fair covering) a bit tricky but we boldy ventured onwards and upwards. But by the time we reached the junction were you can turn left off the red and onto the blue route we thought it best to call it a day for the sake of the younger ones. As there was no wind it was sensationally quiet …absolutely, wonderfully quiet!
We meandered back down carefully and avoided any slippages. Must return soon.
