While the previous stop had been pretty cool, I was even more excited about the next one. We followed the plow, eventually came to a parking lot at the end of the road...
...followed a snowy path for a short walk...
...and made it to Reynisfjara! It's a black sand beach on the southern coast, just outside the town of Vik.
It looked especially cool with the snow on the sand. It was still snowing when we first got there.
I was trying to take a picture of the two of us when a nice guy standing nearby came over and offered to take a picture for us. Much better! :)
The snow was coming down pretty good for a little while; you couldn't see very far down the beach.
I especially liked the texture of the sand. Some of it was fine, but there were big areas of small smooth pebbles, like you might see in an aquarium.
One section of the rocks was a series of basalt columns.
The snow started to let up after a little while...
...and the scenery was surreal. Sorry there are so many pictures...I could have stayed here all day taking pictures!
