Lenticular Clouds at the Volcano Huts

After starting the day in Skogar I finally made it to the Volcano Huts in Thorsmork for a well earned rest! Before settling in for food and a shower I quickly took a few snaps of the lenticular clouds hovering around the mountains. I don’t get the chance to see them very often and they looked incredible as the sun went down.

The Impossible River Crossing

Today I learnt an important lesson in why not to solely rely on Google Maps. I knew exactly where my camp at Thorsmork was but what I didn’t count on was a raging river that I had no way of crossing on foot. I’m not sure if the river is always like that but it seemed like a hopeless situation at the time. I walked alongside the river for a couple of hours until a bus with giant river crossing wheels turned up. The driver was nice enough to let me jump on board and across we went, crisis avoided! This photo is one of the many I took while walking alongside the river (and no this isn’t the ‘raging’ part, haha that’s further to the left). The strange cloud formations were especially awesome around these parts, what a wild day!
