The ice has gone

Since the ice has gone, we got out on Sunday. Destination Marín Trail.

What surprised me was the sign in the carpark in Gwydyr Forest - the one with the map of the bike trails. Actually the sign wasn't surprising, it was the scorch marks where person(s) unknown have burned off the English names of various parts of the Marín Trail; the Welsh place names are untouched. Actually, I'm not surprised at that either - I'm surprised that the course designers (or whomever) decided to call various places by English names. I mean - with the landscape the way it is and the relics of industry scattered around - why did they have to resort to names for sections such as "Sleepy Bear" and "Pigs might Fly"? I don't understand
