We loved the beautiful, clear weather today, around 60 degrees!

We experienced so many landscape changes in just one day! We started off with a lake view from our campsite then walked through craggy lava rocks.

We hiked up Hverfjall Crater, which just looks like a cone of brown dirt with a depression in the center.

The Námafjall Geothermal Area has bubbling mud pots & fumaroles.

Our first bit of driving was across a stark, lunar-esque stretch of brown, flat dirt. Then the road dropped into a lush, green valley with a turquoise river winding along & lots of thin waterfalls dropping off the sides of the mountains. From there, the camper chugged up again to miles of snowy expanse before finally descending into the fjord town of Seyðisfjörður with more little waterfalls everywhere!

The town pool was similar to a YMCA, and we felt right at home. Since we were the only people there near closing time, Earl got permission to take photos. The indoor pool has huge windows that look out onto the hills, mountains, and waterfalls, and this is the view from our campsite, as well. It is truly stunning.
