On Sunday I spent the afternoon with my geocaching buddies Patricia and Bjarki and visited a place called Hrafnagil (Ravens gully) where we had to hike into a small canyon to find the cache.
We scrambled over rocks...they are quite loose and seem to just balance precariously in place.
The cache was not too hard to find although I did end up on my bottom as I reached up to retrieve the cache...the rock, the cache and me came tumbling down...all is well as I seem to have plenty of padding in that area.
Next stop was near the deserted farm Illugastaðir not far from Sauðárkrókur. This is truly a beautiful spot.
The sun was shining and blue skies were breaking through the clouds.
it was spectacular!
Patricia and Bjarki retrieving the cache,
the area looks so isolated
yet there are two houses on opposite hillsides...the pink one definitely looks lived in...they certainly suit the hermit in me
On the way back home we called in to Grettislaug so Patricia and Bjarki could do the cache there (I have done this one before a couple of times when I have had overseas visitors). So while they were on the hunt I took a few photos.
Drangey was bathed in light with moody sky.
Hopefully this summer I get the chance to take a trip there to see the puffins.
