View from Cader Idris, Wales.

Cadair Idris or Cader Idris is a mountain in the Snowdonia National Park, in Gwynedd, northwest Wales. It lies at the southern end of the National Park and reaches 893 m at its summit, named Penygadair (English: top of the chair). It is one of the most popular mountains in Wales. It is composed largely of Ordovician igneous rocks, with classic glacial erosion features such as cwms, moraines, striated rocks, and roches moutonnées. The crater-like shape of Cwm Cau has given rise to the occasional mistaken claim that Cadair Idris is a recently extinct volcano.
