I B-recon You’re A Breacon of Hope?

Driving 45 minutes from Cardiff, we reached Brecon Breacons National Park:

 

 

Those who were averse to the hostel life dropped off their stuff at Penrhadw Farm and we headed on to our main base 20 minutes north at YHA Brecon Beacons Danywenallt. I might be moving away from the hostel life at this age, but some exceptions can be made, especially if we take over the whole place.

 

 

We drove around the park after settling in, including a quick lunch in the town of Brecon.

 

 

And then after another 15 minutes drive starting from Storey Arms Education Center, we started a hike up for the views from Corn Du; the journey is 1600 ft of steep, so while it may just be an hour’s hike each way, it’s a hard one.

 

 

Getting to the very top was something of an accomplishment, I must say.

 

 

Then it’s just another 26 minute bonus round from peak to peak to the top of Pen y Du:

 

 

Then we had dinner back at the hostel before retiring in the fields for some stargazing from some of the darkest skies in the world.

 

 

So wholesome.
