The Brecon Beacons, Wales

02 April 2012

The Brecon Beacons is a barren and wild mountain range in Wales. It was also were we would be camping for a few days. It was the perfect location to explore not only the beautiful Brecon Beacons (try saying that fives times fast) but to explore the surrounding region.

This is some of the beautiful landscapes that we saw driving through the area.

It had been really warm before we left for this camping trip. That changed as soon as we left for the trip. But we were prepared.

Our camp site was in the hills. After supper we decided to take a sunset walk up the hill. It was stunning.

The UK has some of the nastiest pointy prickly plants that I have ever seen. Now I understand all of those Barbour jackets. Gore-tex would be ripped to shreds.

Andrew: We are in Wales. We are top of a hill. There should be a castle.
And there was. We had found where our first stop the next day would be.

I wanted to show a little of what it was like driving in the UK…on the wrong side of the road…on the wrong side of the car. Andrew now has no desire to ever drive a race car. I am sure that I lost years off of my life and added a few grey hairs.

We saw so many beautiful sights. That will forever be imprinted on my soul. No pictures were possible. The roads were VERY narrow and no real shoulder. ARAF in Welsh means slow down, or at least I think it does. It made us smile every time we say it on the road.

See how narrow that road is in the background. Yelp…lots of grey hairs and white knuckels.

It started to get really cold during our final night in the Brecon Beacons so we hung out in the car and read before it got dark and we went to bed.

We were freezing but the swans at our camp site were just fine.
