This is the Day Five route. Started at Ísafjörður and took the inland route back to Reykjavik. Roads on the inland were a lot better quality than the roads we took to initially get to Ísafjörður along the coast.
One of our only planned stops was at the town of Heydalur. We read about a natural hot spring that they had discovered on their farm and all the did was place rocks around it and clean the place up a bit so the water was focused in one area. We had to see it for ourselves.
This was inside of the large indoor pool/shed type place right next to the natural hot spring. These are reins holders for their multitude of horses, one specifically named, Texas.
The indoor pool which was still pleasantly warm. All kinds of growing vegetation in this building as well.
While we were swimming, one of the women on the farm came in and began to water all the plants living in here. The door on the far right in this photo is the exit to the outside natural hot spring.

Everytime I take a photo, Emily always has her "what are you doing?" face on

The view of the ROAD OF DEATH on our way back to Reykjavik. The cleared snow was piled up higher than the car as we passed it. I was so incredibly thankful this road was 1000 times better driving through on our way back than on the way there.
I LOVE VISIBILITY
Roads were clear, no rain, no snow, no ice. Iceland really makes you appreciate nice weather among other things.
Our last windy scenery photo shoot before we got back home.

Ecstatic as I was to be home, safe and sound, we still had an extra day for our car and I was equally as excited to head to Snæfellsnes National Park on Sunday.
