If you already didn't then check out the first part where I had a horrific drive up the Bojafjall mountain( Westfjords, Iceland ) the night before here. I told in the last part that I went up there the next day, this is the day. When we woke up in the morning we saw that sun was shining and top of the mountain was actually clear on one side but there were some clouds rolling in on the other side. After we went swimming in the nearby small waterpark we took a drive up to the Bojafjall mountain once again.
This time I wasn't very scared to drive up because the weather was clear and I already did it once, so I verified my car has enough power to pull itself up. We still had to drive through a small patch of cloud layer but that was okay.
When we finally got up there, we instantly saw what we didn't last night. Views were jaw-dropping and pure stunningness.
Cloud rolling itself around the mountain.
Yesterday I also mentioned the radar station that was up on the mountain. We were not able to see this last night because we only saw a couple of meters in front of us due to the thick cloud layer we were in.
Although this mountain is only 638 meters high you can experience this height in all its glory because the mountain goes up steeply and rises from the sea level. Westfjords, including this place, is one of the oldest parts of present Iceland. Lowest lava layers of this mountain formed about 16 million years ago. There used to be glaciers at this place that are now melted. All the fjords and smooth mountainsides are carved by glaciers over the last 3 million years.
There were clouds on the sea that were lower and we were above these but there was also clouds that were on the other side of the mountain. Basically, we could walk and touch the skies. Walk into it and come back to the clear again.
These photos describe everything.
The other side
If you were to fall down you would fall straight 630 meters down to the beach, this is not advisable, might be lethal. Of course, I don't take risks seriously and go on the edge to get some awesome shots.
On the other side, the area you can see is totally uninhabited. The last persons living there moved away in 1952. The hornstrandir nature reserve was founded in 1975. It covers all of the north parts of Westfjords. There are no roads except the one going to an army base. This is totally a wild place and popular in true nature lovers. I would have wanted to go and hike there a couple of days but unfortunately, I didn't have time. Next time!
Also, a photo was taken while driving up the mountain, through the cloud layer.
I wish I had a timelapse I took on the way driving down the mountain. Unfortunately, I am unable to find this right now.
