NEPAL Dudh Khosi Valley -- Aug 2007 -- While many think the Monsoon is constant rains, in fact, some days are remarkably dry and clear, revealing stunning views like this one of the Dudh Khosi Valley. Trekking the Everest region in the Monsoon months is becoming increasingly popular for some. While the views are not so spectacular as in the main seasons, the elusive, cloudy landscapes are enchanting. The Monsoon reveals a different side of the Everest region, with bright displays of flowers and less trekkers, allowing for a different trek to the usual one -- Picture by Jon Mitchell / Lightroom Photos

Aberystwyth Castle was built, along with Flint Castle, Rhuddlan Castle and Builth Wells castle, by King Edward I as part of his campaign against the Welsh. Aberystwyth Castle, started in 1277, was a particularly taxing job. It still was not completed by 1282 when the Welsh briefly captured and burned it. Construction was finally completed in 1289 at great expense to the crown. The castle was subjected to a lengthy siege during the revolt of Madog ap Llywelyn in 1294-5. By 1307 the castle was thriving enough that people had made their homes next to its walls, and the town was decreed Llanbadarn Gaerog (Fortified Llanbadarn). But the town was commonly referred to by the castle's name, as is the case today. The castle changed hands several times as the Welsh and English warred throughout Wales, including by Owain Glyndŵr, who took possession of the castle in 1404. The English soon after recaptured the castle, but by 1408, peace having been struck, the castle began to fall into disrepair. Still, in 1637 Aberystwyth Castle was designated as a royal mint by Charles I. The mint struck silver coins. This association became the castle's downfall, as the mint's operator, who had been made wealthy by his job, raised a regiment of Royalist soldiers during the English Civil War. This made the castle a target of Oliver Cromwell, who consigned the castle to slighting in 1649.
