iceland, day 04 (0 comments)
day 04 started with a good breakfast at the hostel, then going on in our circular, clockwise round trip around the island. soon we stopped again to find a beautiful small river[005-025]. of course there were sheeps, the living[004] and the dead[009-010,019-022] ones. they are everywhere, and almost always in groups of three. this has always been this way, also already 15 years ago - just the way i remembered it. maeeeeh. actually it's quite amazing how good they can walk the grounds and climb up high mountains. quite often you see three small white (or black) spots in a very steep mountain side.
next we came to a emergency hut[065-077] on a mountain pass. the box was mounted with screws and steel-strings to the ground, so i guess this one is really a safe place, no matter what's happening outside, be it a storm, heavy snowfall, hail, rain, etc. since it was no emergency, we decided to not stay in this box for this night, but rather go on.
you see waterfalls everywhere here in iceland. another beautiful (though unnamed) one we spotted was this one[080-094]. there was also a place to rest there with benches and a table, and since the weather was fine and the sun was shining, we decided to have a break there and grab some food[099-100]. after passing by a strange statue[104] we soon found another unnamed waterfall[109-133]. again pretty impressive and of course beautiful.
it already got a little dark when, on our way to our next hostel, we found an outdoor swimming pool[145-150]. steam going up from the water surface we assumed it was filled with water from a hot spring. so we stopped the car and soon found the source[147] of it. since the natural hot pot was quite small we decided to jump into the pool. the water was warm, the wind outside was cold, but it was superb and wonderful. we were in there for almost half an hour, and only one car passed by. so we were totally alone (once more) and could enjoy the surrounding and the hot spring water.
after the refreshing bath we drove on to bildudalur, where we spent the night at another HI hostel.
