Walker on the Gwent ridgeway near Mynydd Garn-wen
This walker accompanied me on the ascent. A retired resident of nearby New Inn he was a font of knowledge about local walks and walking groups, industrial history, landmarks and events.

His enthusiasm for walking, talking and listening was matched only by his pace and to be honest I had to stop off at the trig to rest, enjoy a brew, the views and reflect on what walkers contribute to one another and how rewarding a short informal conversation, struck up on a hillside can be with a like-minded person.
