This is the only stone church we saw in the countryside of Iceland, which we thought strange given the number of stones littering the earth here.  Then, in a stroke of genius, Jen theorized that, perhaps, since stone is so common and wood is so scarce, that Icelanders chose the more valuable resource to build their houses of worship, giving to God the more precious commodity.

Meteorological and Geological Curiosities from Days 3 and 4 in Iceland

1. It snowed a little on the morning of day 3.

2. Volcanic ash engulfed us in the afternoon of day 3.

3. Glaciers, as you walk toward them, make you very, very cold, from quite a long way away.  Never would have thought of that.  It’s called glacial wind.

4. Today, day 4, has ended with about an inch of snow on the ground.  They say this is unusual.  So far, no Icelanders have been hurt in the rush to get bread and milk.
