We drove around the Vatnajökull glacier. You can see the glacier on picture no 4. The ice is often covered in sand in the summer so it's actually pitch black. It makes the super jeeps look like tiny toy cars. The area behind the glacier was used by the Americans for testing their moon vehicles. They would have been really easy to spot if they were bright pink wouldn't they? The "road" is sometimes just a bunch of yellow sticks in a stony field. We saw one car during this one whole day of driving behind the glacier.
