The Walker’s Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs

In the spring of 2014 I had the pleasure of taking Tristan Gooley on a walk around Cwm Idwal National Nature Reserve in Snowdonia National Park. The walk features as a chapter in his book on Natural Navigation called ‘The Walker’s Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs’. The walk involved looking at wild flowers and geology and how they can be used to aid navigation and to help you know what is going on in the natural world. Plants respond to the climate and weather patterns and can indicate water saturation in the soil. They also help understand the geology of the area and what type of habitat you are in.
