Look, the Attache is running off to see some rocks.  Actually, this was planned stop.  We are at Berserkjahraun which means "Berserkers Lava Field”.  The lava flowed a few thousand years ago and is now covered with thick mosses.  It’s a beautiful area for a walk.  The site also has some cool history.  Two genuine 10th century berserkers cut a path through the lava field but were then betrayed and killed after completing the work.  The path still exists.  Both were buried somewhere in the field, but the actual gravesite we could not find.
