On Saturday morning I got up very early for our drive to the Brecon Beacons. A team of girls from work were walking the St Basil's Challenge - 15 miles up Corn Du and Pen y Fan.
Maria had come equipt with "Emergency Chocolate"
We started about 8.45am, and the first part was very pleasant.
Then the mountains appeared before us, Pen y Fan on the left and Corn Du on the right.
The walk to the top produced some spectacular views - we walked all the way along the ridge.
The last climb was a bit steep
But we all made it in one piece to the top of Pen y Fan - highest point in South Wales.
Despite the lack of pictures, we all made it back down again too with no injuries and no sunburn. 15 miles in 7.5 hours, and it was fun! Bring on the Cotswolds next year!
