    26th August Horseshoe Pass - Pics

    I knew it was going to be a tourist fest around were I live today so set off to the pass at 11AM.

    A journey from my house to Britannia Bridge normally takes 15 mins MAX.. This morning, 25 minutes.. And why?

    Flipping people driving at 5 mph over the bridge ( probably going "oooh, we are on a bridge" )


    That made me want a piss, so a quick stop to empty me and fill the car:



    Was behing either a car doing 40 or a caravan doing 20 all the way almost..


    Got there in the end ( early as usual lol ).




    Bugger got in the way of my shot


    The the others turned up:
























    On the way back I saw a Police Helicopter in a field so hust had to stop and be nosy. Turns out there was a bad crash not far from bala and he was there just incase ( of what I am not sure ). He was kind enough to let me get close and take pics.





    I want one!

    Then after chating to the heli bloke fo about 30 mins, I set off again, and again saw a place for pics:






    And another stop:




    Turned off my normal route home at Capel Curig and headed towards Llanberis. This is a cracking drive along a road with death cliff one side and death wall the other, very narrow, no pavement and load of people walking on it.. Well worth a visit if your in the area.

    Stopped at the lake in Llanberis..





    I really need to park better lol:


    Oh and thought of taking the car down a jetty:




    173 miles later I am home.. Really nice day and nice to meet those who came along..

    Looks like a good day and the weather looked pretty decent too.

    Disappointed that you never asked for a shot of the hayley-copter though!

    Loving the ride height of your car now too - massive improvement.
