Fimmvörðuháls pass - The Cat's Back

Remember, it's not the falling that hurts - it's the stop at the bottom. Luckily there is no wind at all today. But this is the easy bit...

    i just did this hike to eyjafjallajokull last thursday. i didn't realize i was scared of heights--until i got to that narrowest part that is about a foot narrow (it's wide, when you are close to the ground, narrow when you have a few hundred feet to fall on either side.) it was also rainy and slippery the day i went. and, our guide said it was an 'easy' hike, so i didn't take any poles...such an amazing hike, though.

    meanjean It's pretty scary in places, isn't it? I was lucky that the weather was really calm that day - no wind at all.
