Welsh Highland Railway, Wales - 19th June 2012

By: miapearl

Only just arrived to find myself out somewhere.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-CnEr-8oUPMA/T-rdnsec5PI/AAAAAAAAGJ0/6zx8ogR4L5Y/s500/hipsuport1.jpg
I am at a station waiting for the train.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-7efEIOdO0D8/T-rdqGWoE9I/AAAAAAAAGJ8/efmlNlLoGBA/s500/june12whr1.jpg
The train came and we are on the train, just leaving the station.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-bhC_0zeGgl8/T-rdsN4STXI/AAAAAAAAGKE/Vm7IlR6TsF0/s500/june12whr3.jpg
The engine pulls us out of the station, but then has to switch ends to pull us in another direction.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-5VQZihX6VRo/T-rdupQxCdI/AAAAAAAAGKM/MPVdvdhEJ3Y/s500/june12whr4.jpg
Porthmadog has an estuary, with a tidal island.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-N4-GikNUdaU/T-rdw8myv3I/AAAAAAAAGKU/zl6qrL8-8ms/s500/june12whr5.jpg
And inland, are some hills and mountains of Snowdonia in the distance.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-3MDjAUiRzW0/T-rdyYVUuuI/AAAAAAAAGKc/bDY-uWQURUE/s500/june12whr6.jpg
We are going across the Cob, built to cross the estuary.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-aviYj5PkPwg/T-rd7EW7wCI/AAAAAAAAGK0/nxS5ahFGoIk/s500/hipsuwhr1.jpg
This is the River Glaslyn.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-DjXwmwtsar0/T-reLooeTlI/AAAAAAAAGL0/kxiht9oq47Y/s500/june12whr7.jpg
We are moving again.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-ajb6mSb7Plo/T-reQq0nADI/AAAAAAAAGMM/zU9w2zNR4nc/s500/june12whr8.jpg
And on we go.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-MkX89Fn5VFY/T-reSttwPHI/AAAAAAAAGMU/JbuN_4AJCVk/s500/june12whr9.jpg
We have stopped off in Rhyd Ddu. We can take a look at the engine.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-MxUrQmypBKg/T-reUGyJezI/AAAAAAAAGMc/gB63AuSM4yY/s500/june12whr10.jpg
Can you see the top of Mount Snowdon? Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/--lPZ7hSQ7Fs/T-reXRp0YEI/AAAAAAAAGMs/7QBIdc7SVo0/s500/june12whr11.jpg
And on we go.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-_Z9lvHwx3Zo/T-reaLQ5h5I/AAAAAAAAGM0/E-K2I_h4ItI/s500/june12whr12.jpg
We are approaching another station.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-AOpnpEqAfjM/T-rebz7S-_I/AAAAAAAAGM8/9G6z2U0zC4Y/s500/june12whr13.jpg
That engine is called Caernarfon Castle.

Now it is time for weaving to make the cloth.
