Found it The Wildleys found Merthyr Marathon MM9 – Meet the Ancestors

Sunday, October 2, 2005South Wales, United Kingdom

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into Merthyr...!

It was a sunny late afternoon when we began our tour of the moor, and all was golden-green. We had good views all around, especially to the north, where Pen y Fan, Corn Du, and Cribyn stood in magnificent outline.

How funny that we marvel at ancient cairns and house platforms, yet, if these ancestors knew what was coming with the Industrial Revolution, imagine how impressed they would be!

Our exploration of the area was punctuated by the roar of unruly motorbike and dune buggy activity. E shouted angrily at the drivers, but they couldn't hear her over their roar (probably for the best).

We seemed to be chasing Derrylynne today -- although we were some five hours behind. We enjoyed meeting all the ancestors, after which, we headed home for a well-earned tea. Thanks, Write and Mane, for a great day of geocaching!
