We wrapped up this day’s activities by driving on to Krafla to see the power station and see the Viti crater. Viti is Icelandic for Hell. The crater is pretty awesome and filled with water which is turquoise in color.
We marveled at the power station and noticed that some of the pipes used to transport the steam intersected with the road. Rather than have the pipes go under the road, they went up and over.
As we left the area to make our way to the hotel I spotted this off the side of the road.
It seemed whimsical to me, but I am sure it has a purpose…just not one known to me.
Today has been a good day. Tomorrow we head for the east side of Iceland.
