This book explains to the hillwalker- in easy to understand but accurate terms- how geology has shaped the landscape of Snowdonia. A selection of seventeen guided walks is used to illustrate this in terms of what can be seen on the ground. This book- divided into two parts- is intended to help those who love Snowdonias mountain scenery to understand how this haunting landscape came about. The first half narrates the story of colliding continents- volcanoes- mountain-building and glaciations in creating Snowdonia- explaining why volcanoes occurred- the rocks they created and how to interpret signs of mountain-building and glaciations on the ground. The second half describes several recommended walks- of differing levels of difficulty- but all with a wide variety of geological features to be seen and- most important- enjoying consistently fantastic views of the very best of Snowdonias wonderful scenery. The author has concentrated on what you can see as you walk around the hills- pointing to conspicuous- easily seen features in rocks and the overall shape of the terrain in accounting for the present day landscape.New in this 2nd Edition - coverage of Southern Snowdonia; new improved maps; and- five new walks. Also in this series by Paul Gannon - Rock Trails Lakeland; Rock Trails Peak District; and- Rock Trails Scottish Highlands.... Please click here to ask a question
