My friend Adrianna really wanted to do a steam train ride before we left so we decided to head out to Llanberis since they had a ride that went around the lake. On a clear day you can see all the mountains, including the top of Snowdon. The other neat thing was that the train ride also stopped at a slate museum which I was interested in checking out. So we killed two birds with one stone in this trip.
We got off at the Slate Museum stop and decided to have a small picnic outside. One thing I've noticed about museums in the UK is a lot of them used to house whatever they have on display. I don't remember when this slate operation shut down but it was cool to see the machinery still up and some of it actually still in operation, like the water wheel!
We still managed to have some fun while exploring.
