Caches No’s 1252 to 1267 – A Trip To Wales, Day 1

As the weather was looking pretty good I decided to take a week off work and go away to Wales for a few days. My main reason was to go and ride on a train across the main road at Porthmadog (I think I’ll probably have to put up a blog post about that !).

25th June 2011 – York Micro #8 The Red Tower GC1FAMK – cache #1233
