▍ 6. 怪石嶙峋: Brimham Rocks Brimham Rocks

FromYorkA friend from Yorkshire told us that Brimham Rock is a must-see for locals to teach outside the school. There are natural boulders that were formed 350 million years ago during the Ice Age.

On the field visit, the stones are peculiarly shaped and very towering, like traveling through a giant maze. Because of the glaciers and wind erosion over the years, the stones have been sculpted into unique shapes, so the stones have been given exclusive names, such as Druids Writing Desk (ET), Dancing bear, and so on. Walking along the line guided by the official website of Brimham Rocks, it is possible to find out each "character" in a line. Interaction with nature makes people feel wonderful and full of fun.
