Fantastic hiking adventure combining two of the best of England's great walks. This adventure provides the opportunity to experience the variety and beauty of the English countryside, from the spectacular Lake District, through the emerald green Yorkshire Dales onto the desolate North York moors to the waves of the North Sea. Hadrian's Wall is a UNESCO World Heritage Site preserving Europe's largest remaining Roman fortification, marking the northernmost limit of the Roman Empire.

Pinnacles National Park Car Camp with shorter and longer hikes in California's newest National Park located east of Big Sur over the coastal range. The highlight of this park is the fascinating geological formations and the famous talus caves. The lower elevations are lush riparian areas with abundant water and moss covered rocks, scenery we are not used to in SO CA. The park is part of the Condor Recovery Program so there is a probability of seeing adult and/or juvenile condors.
