        ... from the lake made the formations that remain when the liquid lava drained away. Another explanation of the formations are that they are the remains of a huge troll party. The trolls were having such a good time (including lots of drinking) that they didn’t realize they had partied all night and the sun was rising. As everyone knows, the nocturnal trolls are turned to stone when the sun’s rays hit them. Audun accompanied us on this walk, as he said he has lost people ...

        ... on our wagon bragged about being on the cool taxi so his sister joined us from the other wagon. We also hoped to get some bird photos as the island has a huge diverse bird population, but the wagon never stopped and hit bumps so hard they were registering on some peoples' pedometers.
