Day 10 (Saturday, June 30, 2007)

Gistihúsið Egilsstöðum for a second night (Explored Seyðisfjorður fiord, 171 km)

Today was the warmest day yet the car said it reached 22°C, much warmer than the 4°C we were having a few days ago. We had a perfectly blue sky and the air was as clear as it could be.

We drove over to Seyðisfjorður fiord and the town of Seyðisfjorður which is at the head of the fiord. To get there was another steep mountain road. Below is a picture of the town of Seyðisfjorður in the distance from part way down the mountain pass. The town is surrounded by steep mountains and has had problems in the past with avalanches in the winter wiping out part of the town.

This is a photo from in town.


Here is the church in Seyðisfjorður.


A little farther out the fiord towards the open ocean we ran into a series of old abandoned buildings. We have seen a lot of these types of structures around Iceland. Usually there are sheep around them as well until we pull up and they run away.

Abandoned Farm House

Back in the valley that our hotel is in this is a shot of the mountains between it and Seyðisfjorður.

Mtn Range

One final shot for the day back up on top of those mountains at about 10:30pm. Most of the time we complain about power lines or power poles in our shot, so I thought I would make them the subject of this shot.

Power Lines

No new hotel shot for the day since we are staying at the same place as last night.
