Whats pretty amazing about Iceland is how the whole country was shaped by those volcanoes. Every couple of years complete valleys get reshaped because of massive volcano eruptions and the resulting melting water from the ice that flowed through the countryside.
It was pretty humbling to hike through this rough landscape last year and imagining what kind of forces have created it and keep changing it. Following these volcano stories, along with Ebola closely.
Its like the icing of the cake, besides all our other current man made problems.
