Yep and via the F88! WOOOHOOOO!
I love this road ... but today is different .... sunshine!
Its warm ... 20c .. what a difference from a week or so !
We head back to Askja .. across the wonderful lava fields and rivers.... we have a new companion today ... an english family driving for their first time offroad we met in the garage at Myvatan ..
They will be fine ... I act as guide ... stopping at rivers to show them how to cross.....
Then we see her ... majestic ... snow capped .... some clouds at the top .... Herðubreið, the queen of the mountains!
This has to be the most beautiful mountain in all Iceland ...
We take more pictures and head on .
At the junction of the F902 we say goodbye to our friends and also say a quick hello to a german couple and their 1 yr old baby .. they are cycling across the interior ... mad!
We take the F902 and F903 to the Vatnajokull glacier to see the ice caves.
Coming back to use the F903 and F905 .....
The tracks here are deep sand or hard rock.... the sand is basalt sand .. black very soft and difficult ... sometimes the road is gone and its hard to see where to drive!
Arriving back at Mödruladur we meet with the owners .. share coffee in the sun and reminice on the changes in weather, the tracks, the people we met and the adventures we have had .......
