Today started off waking up in our lovely little cabin. We miss our little cabin,our current guesthouse is tiny once more, but at least our little closet of a washroom is just below freezing temperature. Anyway, back to the beginning. Our Beginning started with an early rise as I said, but not to our alarm clocks, but to the sound of this one lonely rooster-the only one in Iceland as far as I can see! Lots a sheep, no chickens. It was fine however because we had a restful sleep, and we had a long drive ahead to the north where there have been alerts of snow storms coming. We braved it anyway, I mean who from Canada has never driven through a snow storm?? What helped along the way was the hilarious tunes on the radio where Icelandic artists remade the lovely songs of Mr. Sandman and what Bonnie describes as Icelandic Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer. It was comforting considering the weather looked a little gloomy and we were once again heading up a mountain! Well we made it, and by the time we reached the lava desert on the top the wind was killer! We stopped to take a pic and Bonnie have a smoke, and it felt like we were in a hurricane with the winds! Soon we made it down to our first stop, after some off roading for 28km to the dental floss falls. (Dettifoss for those in Iceland). They were impressive, for the largest falls in Europe...but I come from Canada...where I have Niagra Falls! After a few wet pics, because the rain started getting harder, Bonnie wanted to persevere, but alas my long driving stretch had me in dire need of simpler sites. So we got back in the Ring road and made some stops close to our guesthouse. The first was some very sulfuric smelling springs, where steam comes whistling out of the earth. Then we hit caves where there were some thermal pools of water. Next to the caves we found where the earth had split in half after some shifts of some tectonic plates, according to Bonnie. Very cool, I got so excited I dropped my iPhone on solid rock! Thank goodness for this leather cover, no damage done! Phew! Then Bonnie said there was this mammoth crater somewhere close, so we found that, and I even managed to park us in the north west part of it so Bonnie could climb the path to the top. Yes only Bonnie, I knows my hiking limits. Once Bonnie, after almost been blown off the edge of the crater, came down, we happened upon our last spot near our guesthouse. By accident of course, Charlie the GPS took us to the site with the same name as our guesthouse. Good thig though as we did one more hike around this really cool lava field, even found some little cave area where local elves live. Good hike around the paths, but now it was time for a rest! Since Charlie was no good at finding our hotel the first time, we braved it alone, figuring that it should not new to hard to find. Well as luck would have it, the minute we turned the corner out of the lava field entrance we saw the entrance to our guesthouse! We settled into our tiny room and napped for about an hour, and now we are at this little restaurant/pub having what is supposed to be bread pudding, Iceland style. Right after we are heading back to our room where we will do some more discovery tomorrow of things further north, weather permitting!
