21st November 2020 - Lockdown 2 - Day 17 - Remembering Hverir, Iceland

 Back in 2010 on our second trip to Iceland we drove from Akureyri to the Mývatn area to see the various volcanic features and to explore the lake area. One of the places we wanted to visit was the Hverir Mud Pots, an area of volcanic activity to the east of the lake, just over the next hilly area from the lake. 

This was an incredibly alien landscape, in fact it was more like Mars than anything here on Earth!

We didn't stop long as the stench from the sulphur was quite overpowering but seeing the strange colours and bubbling pools was something special.
