Offa’s Dyke Path – Day 11

Landslide - An encouraging (LOL) sign as we hiked up to the Offa's Dyke Trail high above Llangollen.

Offa’s Dyke Path – Day 11 – Llangollen to Clwyd Gate

The day started out in the town of Llangollen. We crossed the canal and then headed uphill soon to regain the Offa’s Dyke Path for a very interesting section of the path. We were heading for the end of the world as we know it, watching our footing on scree as we traverse avalanche paths and open rock slides.

Offa’s Dyke Path – Day 0

I’m calling this Offa’s Dyke Path – Day Zero because even though we hiked a bit of the path after we arrived in Chepstow, most of our day was spent in transit getting from Canada to Chepstow. I had left my home in Kanata, Ontario about 5AM the previous day to fly into Halifax, Nova Scotia while my hiking partner, Ron Joy had left his home in St. John, Newfoundland to catch a flight to rendezvous with me in Halifax. Together we then boarded an Air Canada flight at about midnight that got us into Heathrow airport at about 8AM.
Offa's Dyke trip - the start It was raining when I had left Ottawa and it was drizzling a bit when we arrived in Heathrow. Not the best of ways to start a two week hiking trip.

By the time that we landed in Heathrow, I was sleep deprived and my camera kept seeing interesting objects of questionable significance.
