Friday 22st July 00  Hot and sunny but increasing haze later

The Llyn Trawsfynydd reservior was built to supply the Trawsfynydd nuclear power station.  The power station is now closed and being decommissioned, but there is a visitor centre with conducted tours of the site.  Moel Ysgyfarnogod and the ridge north-east to Moel Gyrafolen are the most northerly summits of the Rhinog ridge, a wild and relatively quiet corner of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales.
