Cynon Valley - Down the Valley up, up the valley down, 24 February 2024

What an adventure we had with the Merthyr Valley Ramblers today! ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™‚๏ธ Starting at Mountain Ash rail station, our group of 15, including our new friends Scott and Faisal, embarked on the โ€œUp and Down The Cynon Valleyโ€ walk. ๐Ÿž๏ธ Led by the ever-resourceful John Holloway, we ventured through misty landscapes and conquered flooded lanes with our trusty waterproof boot covers (provided by John who had pre-empted this hazard!). ๐ŸŒซ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ขWe paid homage to the legendary runner Guto Nyth Bran, climbed steep ridges, and enjoyed lunch under the Welsh sun. ๐ŸŒค๏ธ Our journey was not just about the walk, but also about remembering our dear friend Richard, as we passed the cemetery where he rests. Every step was filled with laughter, camaraderie, and the spirit of exploration. ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’– Thanks to all the ramblers who joined us, making it a day to remember! Ready to join our next trek? Keep your boots ready and your spirits high! ๐Ÿฅพ๐ŸŽ’
