This photo was taken a few weeks ago, not far away from the source of the river Markarfljót. The river has an important role in the most popular Icelandic Sagas, Njala. It is one of the unabridged rivers you must drive your vehicle into and over when traveling through the Southern Fjallabak. The whole area is simply fantastic with colorful mountains, small glacier tops, waterfalls, rivers, lakes, creeks, canyons, great stories, sad stories and magnificent hiking trails. It is an area worth visiting but demands good vehicles and a lot of preparation.
