Top of Caernedd LLewellyn in early Spring with the Clouds parting to reveal a beautiful view into the Ogwen Valley. Then running (used loosely here as there was deep snow) back down to the Cottage for a lovely cup of hot chocolate.

the sun setting over the Olympic peninsula.... Puget Sound glowing, the mist turning orange in the fading light. the snowy Cascades shimmering pink, a trail of steam rising from the volcanos into the cold atmosphere. to the south, Mt Rainier shines out,, the frozen cap hovering above the forest around it, seeming to levitate over the horizon.Seattle sunsets from the Space Needle.... *sigh*

Dahab.Huts on the beach at about 30p a night, & miles of empty beaches dotted with palm trees backing on to desert & mountains. Mind you I haven't been for around 15 years. By now its probably been ruined by commercialisation & tourism.

Second Best although very close, a Small Volcanic Plug above Lake Balaton in Hungary, the mist is still in the valley and there is a small crowd, all waiting with baited breath (does that mean they smelled fishy, I never can tell). Slowly at first, out of the west the valley floor begins to darken, the birds start to go to roost and a small cresent is bitten from the edge of the Sun. The shadow accelerates across the flat plain reaching the side of the volcano in short minutes.Then its dark. Through the lens I can just see the fading of Bailey's beads as the sun sets through the valleys of the Moon. Totallity is due to last 2.5mins and then.... The corona of the Sun bursts forth in its multihued brilliance, radiating prominances erupt forth in shades of Red and Orange and Yellow. Transfixed the Crowd sighs in unison. All to suddenly its gone and the brightest diamond seen by mankind showers it luminance upon the Earth. Sweeping in from the West come, wave after wave of perfectly semicircular cloud fronts, bourne by a warming wind. The Eclipse is over and we crack a bottle of Champagne and start our slow, nay awe-struck walk down the mountain through the vinyards below, back to our tents on the terraces.

Depends on my mood. If I am wanting company and soom good riding it would be Haworth - a very good mate lives down there so I do like heading that way for a bleather, some fine ale and a good thrash on the moors.If I am feeling more reflective it would be the bothy and beach up at Rackwick
