The Guards On The Heath

When hiking in Iceland you will see the guards that hikers throughout the ages raised to help you find the right path to your destination.

In times when we are struggling with the help of smart devices and navigation systems, there is no great need for the guards who are on our way. However, if these devices fail us in the middle of nowhere and the fog appears by surprise then it may be good to find a guard.

Sometimes the guards are more than one in the same place, whatever the purpose. Maybe the first one was getting pretty big. These guards who are on the road over Steingrimsfjordur heath no longer have much utility. However, they have aesthetic value in the big picture when the sun, the sky, the clouds and the landscape offer you one unforgettable moment.
