The Ring Road is a road circling Iceland that can be driven in 24 hrs straight, if necessary. My favorite feature of Iceland was discovering the ever shifting geology and scenery along the way. The 2 lane drive had the unhurried feel of a back country road, rustic and untouched. One minute we’d stumble upon glaciers and icebergs in a pond, and the next there would be volcanic rock and black sand beaches. The serenity lulled us into such a sense of calm that we picked up 2 Icelandic hitchhikers and lived to tell the tale..
