Iceland: Single White Chair In the Middle of a Black Lava Flow


Single White Chair – An Unexpected Treasure in the Middle of Nowhere

Take a seat and relax, you are in the middle of nowhere in Iceland!

Every great adventure brings unexpected discoveries.  Our 11 day trek around Iceland via the Ring Road in a motor-home was just one such epic adventure full of unexpected discoveries like this single white wooden chair with hearts carved in it in the middle of a vast valley of black lava.

This day began as one of the most hellish days we experienced in Iceland.  We knew it was going to be our longest day of driving but we didn’t expect the fog and driving rain was going to wipe out just about all of our planned scenic stops and coastal views.  Or the scary drive over a mountain top, in the pouring rain and fog with a motor-home on a section gravel road over said mountain that pretends to be the main highway of a modern European country.

The one way bridges and one way tunnels and scarce guard rails we could handle but a pot hole, muddy road over a mountain pass with a motor home was a bit much.

Thankfully near the end of the long day of driving we came upon this amazing valley of mountains and black lava fields.  Some one was kind enough to provide this wonderful single white wooden chair as foreground subject.

One can only image hiking across this vast landscape of nothing but sharp, unstable, black lava rock without a tree as far as the eye can see and coming across this bit of humanity.  A single white chair providing a spot to rest.
