High on the bleak Denbigh moors lies Llyn Aled, a deep, weed-free natural lake of about 110 acres.The lake is also the source of a river of the same name. At 1,250 feet above sea level it’s usually windy and cool here even when the nearby coastal resorts are sweltering in a heat wave. Almost completely treeless for miles around, the shoreline is mostly natural mountain grassland.
On the way home from St. John’s we detoured off to visit Llyn Aled. The lakes isn’t that photogenic but the beautiful open countryside, with a lone tree silhouetted against the sky is. Actually there was another tree just off camera, but two trees didn’t look as good as this single one.
