For today's activation of Plinlimon, Andy, (GW7RKC)and myself, Mal (GW6OVD) met up around 9.00 for the hour and a half drive to our starting point. 
As we arrived there wasn't a cloud in the sky, and just a light breeze, what a great day for walking!










Plenty of parking at our start point SN797-840 just off the A44 but there is a charge of £3.00 for the day.








From the car park go through the farm yard, past the scary dogs through the gate marked "All walks" and follow the rough road for a couple of K







Although it was a beautiful  sunny day there were plenty of signs along the way that winter hadn't quite finished with us yet.
At one point our path was crossed by a baby badger, no bigger than a cat.









When we reached SN794-856 we left the road and headed NW up the path towards the summit.  The path is still a little vague in places but better than our last visit in 2012








Andy (GW7RKC) busy on 2m shortly after setting up.  
A very good VHF site with contacts as far as Northern Ireland and well into the Pennines on FM
A little cooler at 752m asl!
