The Dragons Breath of the Black Mountains

Rising high in the hills of mid Wales the mighty River Usk accompanied by the majestic River Wye wind their way towards the Black Mountains at that point they are parted by the defiance of the hills. The Usk fights its way through the hills exploiting any weakness in the geology forcing its way down the valleys. The Wye takes a more sedate route into Hay-on-Wye skirting around the Black Mountains and on into Hereford.

Once the River Usk reaches Crickhowell its pace eases as it widens and slows down on its way to Abergavenny. If the conditions are perfect the mystical dragons breath forms over the River Usk at dawn lying in wait for the warmth of the morning sun to free it from its slumber.
