On the way to Selfoss I stopped several times to make pictures. At one point I was in Selfoss. I decided to drive through the city of Selfoss and go to the mountain Ingolfsfjall. This mountain is just outside of Selfoss. This is a huge mountain. First I drove on the back side of the mountain. Just made a small tour along this mountain. The mountain is really massive. At a certain point I went to the other side of the mountain. Up here there is a lookout point. Here you have a great view about the area. I was here for a while. Then I went back to Selfoss to have lunch. After a while I went driving again. Up to Stokkseyri. This is a village on the coast. When I was here, I parked the car. I walked to the lookout. You have a great view over the sea and along the coast of Iceland. I picked some sand from the small beach for a penpal of mine. When I was finished, I went driving again. Via Baugsstadir I went back to Selfoss. I went to the hotel to check in. After I put my bags in the room, I went outside. I walked a part along the river. There was a strong current in the river. I made a round to the Kjarninn Shopping Centre. When I walked in the Shopping Centre, all the shops were closed. I didn't think of the fact that it was Sunday. So, I walked into the Main Street. There wasn't much to see. So I decided to go back to the hotel.

    Mount Ingólfsfjall is where the earthquake started, 6,3 on the Richter scale, with a lot of large stones flying down the mountain. But a lovely mountain.
