Siggi has persuaded Kristberg to allow us to go 'off Piste' so to speak, with an unscheduled visit. Kris only agrees if we are all sworn to secrecy so this must go no further! So, we're once again on a rough gravel road heading for Hljˇaklettar or 'Echo Rocks'. Kristberg strides off ahead of the group, assuring us that it will be an easy walk. We follow the gravel path and soon find ourselves climbing up precarious rocky paths but it ...
... rough gravel road sending up great clouds of dust. This is a very barren area virtually no vegetation at all, just grey gravel left by glaciers of the past and crunchy volcanic ash. In a couple of place it looked as if we were passing through old volcanic calderas with jagged peaks all around and patches of deep red scoria here and there.These roads take their toll on tyres. D has had a few punctures mended and he was hoping that we would get through these ...

I ...
... which serves as my dinner. Its also nice to get inside away from the cold for a while. There is noone else in the campsite, so I decide to sleep inside in the indoor seating area that night, although annoyingly the bright flourescent lights which light the room cannot be turned off and seemed to be switched on and off automatically depending on the time. Wearing the eyemask helps and I manage to sleep reasonably well, and I am at least out of the cold and the wind for the night.
