I have caught up on sleep and banished much of my jet lag from the whirlwind weekend in Portland, which means I can focus once again on posting the rest of my photos from Iceland. The latest batch is from a wildly beautiful region called Mývatn. This is a highly active volcanic region in North Iceland, full of volcanoes, craters, strange lava formations, and active fissures. The ground is literally steaming, providing the perfect place for multiple geothermal power plants, a soothing nature bath, and an underground bakery of the locals’ hverabrauð, a sweet rye bread so moist you will yearn for it long after your return home. This is also the land of Krafla, a volcanic region currently swelling, indicating an impending eruption. I could have spent days hiking here, poking around in the wide variety of geological wonders that scatter the region.
