Iceland Part 4

We waited for the road to open until late morning, then off we went to the north. Lots of wind still, and Johannes had to be very diligent at the wheel. We left Hofn, headed for Djupivogur, where we were supposed to have stayed the night before. A few scenes along the way:

We reached Dujupivogur and stopped for lunch at the Hotel Framtid, situated right on the harbor.

This village has a very interesting exhibit called the Eggs at Merry Bay. The artist Sigurdur Gudmundson has created a series of 34 giant Chinese granite eggs which represent the eggs of each of the nesting birds of this area.

From Djupivogur, we drove for a few hours back and forth through a series of rather large fjords, then up and through a long mountain tunnel and on to the snowy highlands, eventually reaching Myvatn.
