The Green is intense

Iceland presents you with a fabulous array of greens. There are greens that jump right out of the neon colors of the 80s. There are greens that are close to black, there are mosses and lichens, trees and grass, flowers and shrubs, each in their very own shade of green.

Here is an ash crater in Western Iceland. We stopped along the road and climbed onto Grábrók, an ash crater that was formed in a fissure erruption less than 3000 years ago. Grábrók is located in the Ljósufjöll volcanic system and is rather tall. Its a great hike I really recommend when you get a chance.
