Unfortunately, my memory is more of the howling wind, driving snow, and hopping up and down to stay warm while photographing the beauty around us. This dark day ended with the group searching for a wandering student in a snowstorm and counting as little as one post visible on the side of the icy road ahead of us, while driving back to our guesthouse. “Thank God for studded tires,” our brave leader, Bill Schwab, said (more than once on our adventure) as he hunched over the steering wheel in rapt attention.
Lain Stewart gives a great presentation about plate tectonics in the video Etnatao: Icelandic Volcanism and Plate Tectonics.
