We headed to the Clwydian Range in Wales, just an hour's drive from Liverpool, and an area we just never get tired of walking in. There's a reason that the daffodil is one of the symbols of Wales - they are everywhere, blooming profusely on the sides of the roads.
No time to stop though - today was all about picking up the pace, pushing ourselves up those elevations and getting some mileage under our legs. A little further along the path, which is the northern part of Offa's Dyke, the long-distance walk along the border of England and Wales, and we could see our next hilly challenge, Moel Arthur.
Up and over and looking back. You can see the tip of the tower on Moel Fama in the distance. And yes, that white bit is snow, fortunately the only patch that we encountered.
We made our way back to Loggerheads where we'd parked the car, via a country lane, the village of Cilcain, and the Leete path. Just under six hours and 15.5 miles covered. We're not quite ready for the Peak challenge - we were both fairly knackered and sore - but we'll get there. And at least we were dry.
