I may not have been able to see very far on my walk up The Black Mountain (Y Mynydd Du) last Saturday, but I could still enjoy looking at the pretty colours of the grass.

On Sunday my circular walk over some of the classic peaks in the Brecon Beacons started by walking through Cwm Llwch.
The sun broke through the cloud as I walked along a ridge towards the summit of Corn Du.
The mountains looked very pretty when the cloud cleared enough to see the summits of Pen y Fan and Corn Du.
The view back to Llyn Cwm Llwch and Cwm Llwch from the side of Corn Du.
After climbing Corn Du, it was up and then down Pen y Fan.
Then up again on to Cribyn, which is where I got this view of Fan y Big. Frustratingly, something had gone a bit wrong with my knee and I was in a lot of pain and so I decided not to walk up Fan y Big that day and head back to the car.

Haven’t been to the Brecons for years – might go next summer. Last time I did Fan y Big, Richard wouldn’t get out of the car and just sat in it till I got back – wasn’t a bad day either!
I really like the Brecons and feel like I should explore them more. I think Richard might have missed out.
He certainly did – that’s the one with ‘The Diving Board’ I think. Also a Roman Road to the gap…
