In search of Eyjafjallajökull
Plan "A" was to go check out the current erupting Iceland volcano,Bárðarbunga, but it turned out to be too far away to do in the short time I had. Eyjafjallajökull is the one that erupted in 2010 and fouled up air traffic in Europe for days. That eruption is over but it was a good plan "B" hike.
