Giants' playground...

This is from the walk up to Llyn Cau a few days ago. The lake itself sits below Cadair Idris which means Idris' Chair. Legend has it that Idris was a giant who used to have stone throwing fights with his fellow giants who lived nearby and the remnants of those battles are the boulders that are strewn across the valley leading up to his chair. And, you're right, there is just as much evidence for that story as there is for Creationism.

Yes, it's easy to understand how legends grew up in dramatic landscapes like this.
