    Northumberland National Park, UK

     
    While I have visited numerous National Parks in the United States, I am an adventurer and enjoy to exploring what other countries have to offer.
    In 2008, my daughter Brooklyn and I took a trip through Northern England and around Scotland. One of the stops on our adventure was to camp and hike around Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland National Park, UK.
    Northumberland National Park is in northern England. We camped at a local campsite within the National Park and proceeded to explore Hadrian’s Wall.
    Hadrian’s Wall goes from coast to coast and is a World Heritage Site. The wall was built around 122AD during the rule of the Roman Emperor Hadrian.
    There are hiking paths, cycling paths and horse trails to enjoy in this park. Flowing green unspoiled countryside with sheep and cattle roaming along the way. This is a place of quiet solitude, enjoying the peace and spending quality time with your family while truly enjoying what Mother Nature has to offer. Did I say green? Oh I can't forget the clumps of heather throughout the land giving way to burst of purple majesty.
    I have talked about the beauty by day, but you can’t forget about the night sky. The area does not have much light from cities, street lights and traffic. On a clear night, the heaven’s open up and you suddenly see the night light up with stars that seem like a thousand fireflies at the ready to be caught.
    This was the first stop on the journey and I would go back again. I highly recommend this area, not just for the historical value, but the beauty.
