Pontardulais to Ammanford

The usual Sunday evening chat with the "Navigator" led to a plan to drive to Ammanford catch the bus (free with our bus passes) to Pontardulais and walk back over the hills.
Our little group of three was expanded by Paul.

From the bus stop in Potardulais we waked through the town and climbed steadily onto Graig Fawr, stopping halfway for a coffee break. The views showed the frosty land below while higher up we were in sunshine.

The route up

We continued to the top and then had lunch looking into Blaenffynhonnau.

Lunch looking towards Pentwyn Mawr
These lovely hills have not escaped the scourge of the windmills.

Control your temper!
They even have their own signs, not unfortunately pointing towards hills and paths.

Not footpaths but signs to wind things
As we descended towards the road  at Penlle`r Castell we discovered the tarmac was an ice sheet and watched a car and a van precariously manoeuvring their way down, the car in reverse!

Our route back took in Bettws and across the Afon Aman into Ammanford.

Slight thaw
