Lucky is the walker who sees these falls in full flood — with creaming foam draping ancient boulders, creating little rainbows if the sun should be shining between the leaves.
Timelessness is here at the bottom of the gorge, a sense of what was, what is, what will be.
Under the charred bodies of invaders, sapling growths of oak, birch, and blackberry are flourishing.
A full circle of ridges and summits displaying a medley of blues, greens, browns; contrasted by mist veiling Eryri’s rugged faces.
The eyes keep returning from distant horizons to this Moelwyn massif, to mighty molars meticulously placed in monumental stone walls.
A strange incongruous sound of a steam locomotive puffing away a little more than a hundred yards somewhere beyond the wall of trees.
One thing about this mountain is its truthfulness. It presents challengers with its true summit, honestly facing them in full frontal candour; not like some moels which proffer false summits while keeping the real one back.
