Yes it’s me. I’ve found my EPIC #FindYourEpic. As part of a tourism initiative to get visitors into the area a large sign measuring four metres high by eleven metres wide was fixed to a hillside at Pen-y-Gwryd in the Snowdonia National Park. The sign is mirrored and has the word EPIC. Visitors were encouraged to share their images of the letters on social media using #FindYourEpic. Now here’s the thing, the National Park gets enough visitors as it is in the summer time so it hardly needs more, especially in that area.
There has been a mixed reception to the sign, some people like it, others say it spoils an area that has some beautiful scenery. Fortunately it’s not staying long as the sign is due to me moved somewhere else in Wales tomorrow
Knowing it was going tomorrow and despite heavy rain being predicted for all day it seemed a shame to miss getting a photograph. So off we went into the National Park to find it. Now knowing where it is and actually finding it in low-lying cloud are a different thing. Ten minutes before this photograph was taken, the road you can see in the background was shrouded in a thick mist and we were having trouble following the road. Fortunately the cloud started to lift and by the time we parked up, got the camera gear out, we could just see the sign on the hill through the mist.
