Skaftareldahraun, Lava Fields

Skaftareldarhraun, Lava Fields.
 
There is an area between Vik and Hofn where one of the largest lava flows occurred in recent recorded history. It flowed from the Laki vent in a volume of 12 cubic kilometers over an area of 565 square kilometers, which is about 1/2 of 1 percent of Iceland. That may not seem like a lot until you see it. It is now covered with green moss and is mainly in the shape of large boulders of lava rock. The area is now part of the Katla Geopark and super interesting to visit, and of course photograph. I can only imagine how it looks in the summer or fall when there isn’t snow covering it. When you look at the area, you really get a sense on how our Earth’s surface was formed with fire.
