Krafla is a dormant volcanic cone in a geologically active area.  Though it was now very late summer, there was still some ice around.

Krafla is near Mývatn and about seven or eight kilometres down the road from Hverarönd (previous post).

Something of a small ice cave, as water flows beneath the ice.
