Day 5: Hot springs area at Skutustathahreppur

Natural hot springs area just outside the village of Reynahlid, where our hotel was located. If you look carefully, you can see areas roped off with stakes and cables. We were warned not to step beyond the cables. Extremely hot water flows right under the ground surface and can pop through at any time. The area is monitored and the stakes are moved accordingly. A cold morning but a very impressive place. Note the beautifully colored volcanic rhyolite hills.
