Brief Encounter with Garway Hill   12 comments

A local walk to fill a gap in an otherwise pretty soggy few days. TBF’s sister was staying with us and TJS was staying overnight at a friends near Garway Hill after a party. What better than to combine a taxi ride to pick him up with a local walk between the showers.

There were stormy clouds on the horizon and they were heading straight for us.

Lets just say we finished the walk rather more briskly than we wanted to!

We made it back to the car before the rain but on the drive home the heavens opened and biblical rain fell. There were small-scale local floods. Just as well we didn’t dither on the summit

  1. Oh how I long for some of that cloudy, cool rainy weather. It’s been way too hot here in Oregon this week…..

    • Handily placed only a 20 minute drive from home. Interesting to watch the storm brew – until we realised we might get caught on a exposed hill in a thunderstorm!

  3. Between showers seems to be the norm this ‘summer’. Those clouds look very threatening. Incidentally, from what I can gather the weather was diabolical here in Lancashire last week – it seems that we got off relatively lightly at Towyn.

  5. You have some lovely countryside down there. My kind of landscape for enjoyable day walks rather than.a monster trek.
