Geocache Description:

Important: thank you Kloeschen for the new container/Danke an Kloeschen für Cachewartung'. Thanks a lot, vielen Dank dafür!!

a long straight forward road and we think a reason to stop the car and get some information about this interesting landscape is quite useful. Pull over and stretch your legs, enjoy the views.

According to tradition, there was a large farm known as Laufskálar on about this site.
The farm was destroyed in the year 894 in the first recorded eruption of the vulcano Katla. The lava mount, which is known as Laufskálavarða, was named after the farm.

Everyone passing by it for the first time is supposed to add a stone to bring him good luck on his journey.

So, please dear geocachers, put a stone to the others and have a good and safe journey and great times caching in Iceland.

!!Congratulations to pescepagliaccio for FTF!!
