Snowdonia Fieldtrip - Post 2 of 3 - Upland glaciation

The first full day of our Year 12 trip to Ryhd Y Creuau took us with Jemma on an upland glaciation day.
This was to the area around Cwm Idwal, and we travelled by minibus to the Ogwen Valley - a few ragged areas of snow persisting despite the rain of the last couple of days.
We wandered up into the Cwm and went around the corrie lake, collecting data on a range of glacial processes and evidence, such as measuring striations, and taking images with Skitch. We finished at the head of the Nant Ffrancon valley, then returned to the field centre for food and some work into the evening.
A good first day of our trip.
