Description of Photograph
Mike prepares to deal with some trespassers who have stumbled across the camp in the Penmaenuchaf woods.
Bivouac by the campfire. Even in the worst rain North Wales can offer, it is still possible to sit out by the fire.
Mike fanning the campfire in a desperate attempt to keep it alight. Smoke can pose a bit of problem under the bivouac, but you get used to it!
For those brave enough to sleep out directly under the night sky, a hammock is an option. Lynsey demonstrates the use of a hammock to full effect.
An unexpected guest in the tent at 2:00a.m.! Although it looked like a Scorpion, it turned out to be a Devil's Coach Horse beetle (ocypus olens). At least that was the identification provided by Mark Watson from the Penmaenuchaf Hall Hotel.
Winter camping. This was the view of camp one morning in December 2004. Snow-capped Diffyws can be seen in the background.
Autumn Camping. A picture of camp including the windbreak and bivouac in the autumn.
Sundown in Snowdonia. Two man tent hidden in the woods at Penmaenuchaf at dusk.
