Ice Ice Baby

Yes I've been waiting for days to use that title, today it seems appropriate. There was ice on the car this morning & on the road, since it was my turn to drive I braved the conditions & we set off....slowly. Th weather was beautiful, the sun was out and the first shower we had we were already tucked into our hotel for the night. The landscape changes every few miles I'm sure, there was snow capped mountains, desert, lava fields, waterfalls, canyons and of course I got to drive up, over, round & through these all on the wrong side of the car & road.

A short hike across the moon like landscape took us to the waterfalls Dettifoss (1st one) and selfoss (2nd pic)
Walking on the moon

We took in the view at Krafla power plant
The dreamed of warm baths at the mud baths

We stopped for an expensive but good cake & chocolate at the Vogafjoss Cow Shed Cafe were during milking you can sip your coffee in the cafe overlooking the milking or just enjoy the view of the lake.

I climbed a volcano!!! Oh it was hard going at such a steep angle with loose rocks but I climbed a volcano!!!
At the top of Hverfjall

Our final excursion in the bitter cold was to Dimmuborgir, a lava field.
