Brecon Beacons

Flocks of mountain sheep live off the rough vegetation for much of the year and this affects the variety of plants that can survive on the hills. Grazing by different animals at different intensities affects vegetation cover. Without sheep, for example, there would certainly be more woodland on the lower slopes. Who knew that grazing was this essential to maintaining the land? Follow @jsvisuals._

Bit of a lazy, side of the road shot on the way home from the dreaded autumn clothes shopping trip. Came home with a woolly jumper.

Second Severn Crossing

@margotjakobson has been sending me abuse for months now for not uploading the pictures from our end of July trip so I guess we're skipping Paris and going straight to Wales for summer trip #3.

Beauty in the details, tiny creature edition part 3. This guy positioned himself on the window of a pub looking out over the most stunning scenery. Bus loads of visitors on both sides of him, in the pub and on the sun deck. I don't think he took much notice of them...

Plans. Proper planning can lead to some great results, but when situations change, plans need to be adapted to allow for this new reality. It’s all about a balance between long term plans and short term practicalities. .

Snowdonia National Park

It takes anywhere between 21-66 days to form a habit... A week on from finishing my 100km single-use plastic free hike and I’ve continued to use all of the plastic free swaps apart from the toothpaste tablets, I can’t quite get to grips with those (and 66 days of accidentally swallowed toothpaste tablets isn’t going to do me much good 😂)

None of it’s been an inconvenience so I’ve had no reason to stop. In fact, things like the reusable food bags are more convenient because I don’t have to remember to buy disposable bags/ cling film/ foil any more!

The hike was a great way to kick start new habits - next on my agenda is to look at food shopping and see what I can do there. I’m never going to be perfect, but it’s not about perfection, it’s about being more mindful. I care too much about the outdoors to ignore how I contribute to wrecking it 🌎

📸 thanks for the shot @footstepstoadventures

Devil's Bridge Waterfalls

The Devils Bridge 📍
Pontarfynach Village 📍
Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 The Devils bridge ,three Bridges built over one another . The original bridge is medieval built around 1075 and the second one is a stone structure built in 1753 , and the third 1901 which is an iron bridge which was erected above the old arches. According to the legend the first bridge was built after an old woman lost her cow and saw it grazing on the other side of the river , the Devil appeared and agreed to build a bridge in return for the soul of the first living thing to cross it , unfortunately it was the old woman’s Dog !. 🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃 #devilsbridge #devilsbridgewaterfalls

Snowdon

For those asking about my route - it’s a modified version of the Paddy Buckley Round, a circular fell running challenge route, of just over 100km, with 47 summits in total, and over 8,500m of ascent. How people actually run this I’ll never know! I say modified, because I’ve taken out some of the ascent but kept the distance. We’ll call this the Sarah Leighton round... which is becoming increasingly winged, based on what I feel... because I have an inability to follow a plan!

Last night I mapped out what I’ve done, I’m at 78km, with 22km to go. Ordinarily I’d have no problem finishing that today, which was the plan, but if you saw how I’m currently walking you’d wonder how I’ve managed the last 40km over the mountains tbh, I know I am 😂 It’s like a scene from Thriller 🤦🏼‍♀️ Despite the ankle (and now knee) pain, and the potential that if the wind changes I could end up walking like this forever 😬, I’m really enjoying myself! So I might just give myself one more night in my tent, or I might not, who knows, I decide these things hour by hour 🤷🏼‍♀️

And there we have it... the Sarah Leighton 100km Plastic Free Round 💪🏼 (102km to be precise) A modified version of the Paddy Buckley Round in the Snowdonia National Park. Guaranteed to drench you to the bone, again, and again, and again (and again and again and again). Guaranteed to turn your feet as wrinkly as the underside of a mushroom, to make you drink path water with a hint of sheep shit, to put you through more bogs than you’ve had hot dinners, to make your hair look like you’ve been dragged though a hedge backwards, and to make you walk like a penguin that’s been mauled by a crocodile!

But it’s also guaranteed to be environmentally friendly, to show you the beauty of Snowdonia, and to remind you how good it feels to live out in nature, to move, and to be free!

I decided to finish the final leg yesterday to make it back to my start point just as darkness fell. I’ve never limped so far in my life - I honestly must have covered a solid 65km of this hike with a limp. I’ll do a final review of the plastic free alternatives that I used tomorrow, but what I will say is this excursion has helped create plastic free living habits that I will certainly be continuing. I’d like to thank @firepotfood @waterwelltravel and @nuud.care for their kind support in helping me go plastic-free. And @lowe.alpine for the comfiest backpack that helped me carry everything - which by the way I have now named Wilson. Me and Wilson had a blast! [gifted]
