  3. Day 3: Ring Road: Akureyri to ReykjavikDay 3: Ring Road: Akureyri to Reykjavik
Spotted sheep near the road at a small town about an hour east of Akureyri
Helping Dad keep an eye out
Napping with dad
Taken in Iceland, on the Ring Road about an hour east of Akureyri
A small lake near Lake MyVatn on the Ring Road, Iceland
We couldn't drive by these rock formations without stopping and walking around
Caves on a small lake near Lake MyVatn on the Ring Road. Iceland
About an hour east of Akureyri
Pretty at the shore, but lots of little insects, midges maybe
Our wonderful Kia
The Dark Tower? The Tower of Art? Iceland, Ring Road, near Lake Myvatn
Caves on a small lake near Lake MyVatn on the Ring Road. Iceland. Nikon 10.5mm
About an hour east of Akureyri
Not enough time to try the roads less traveled. Next time we will take more time
Curious lambs
Northern coast of Iceland, on the Ring Road
Keeping a careful eye on us even while eating
Are you enjoying this grass?
Lamb standing guard
Off shift, dad takes over as lookout
These sheep are on the wrong side of the fence
Taken on the eastern part of the Ring Road, Iceland
Nice black faced lambs
He (or she?) is noisy, maybe because he doesn't like his "haircut"
Taking a shortcut, Route 939, starting to climb
This cut a corner off a drive to the northeastern town of Breiðdalsvík. A beautiful drive on a twisty gravel road. Recommended!
Small waterfalls along the road
The waterfalls get slightly larger
We continue to climb into the clouds
Entering the clouds
Faintly seen waterfalls
Whiteout conditions
Cairns in the mist
Crouching grader, waiting for the next snow
Starting to descend
Bigger waterfalls on the western part of Route 939, northeastern coastal Iceland
Level with the clouds now. Big valley leading towards the coast
Gradually coming down on a relatively straight part of Route 939, northeastern coastal Iceland
Sort of like Utah, but with water and clouds
Myriad waterfalls
Nicest waterfall down near the plain
Nice spot for a picnic
Superwide view of our Kia, muddy from the gravel road
A great waterfall, probably totally anonymous
The southern end of Route 939, taking us back to Route 1, Iceland
The anonymous stream running along Route 939
Hardy bushes growing from crevices
öxi translates as Axe in English, and it was a nice cut through the mountains
Pretty self-explanatory
Steep and narrow, but very fun to drive
You have been warned!
This is a female sheep with her lambs. Really
Now you can see how wide she is!
Horning in on the action
Driving along the eastern part of the Ring Road, getting into mid evening
Eider ducks in formation, eastern coast Iceland
