As happy as an icelandic person is the sun

Today was all about the Fjords, but also about the winds, we are still in the west fjords and our goal is to be in Isofjodur tonight. Last night we slept in a place called Talknafjodur, or something like that.
We set off to do some nice riding, but the wind made it a bit more difficult. Never mind, it is part of the adventure.
There was a track on the map around one of the peninsulas and we decided to take it. The moment we got on it, the wind died and we had the best time. Sunny, nice temprature, some watercrossings and nobody on the road. Perfect.

 Me, doing a crossing with enough throttle.
 Our lunch spot
 the biggest waterfall in the west part of Iceland. As always, it looks smaller on camera.

 Isofjordur, still lots of snow and the moment the sun was gone, very chilly.
 Lots of boulders on one part of the track, but as the big 4x4 also know of this track, the surface was still smooth(ish)
To reach Isofjordur, you have to go via a tunnel. We tried to look for the old road over the mountain, but couldn't find it. The Tunnel is nice, one lane only and and intersection in the middle of it. Very cool. We had a great meal at the local fishrestaurant, but we were not allowed to eat with the rest of the people, we had to sit in a seperate room. Are we starting to smell like bikers already?
