4 years ago, I heard of these fantastic columnar #basalt joints in Sai Kung. Trending 062 and plunging near 90 degrees. Today, after 2 buses, accidentally getting off too early off the bus, a minibus and a 8.9 mile hike I made it. Turns out this trail has 3 sections and we only hiked one. Thanks mom for sticking it out with me the whole hike I would have gone alone but you would have been worried. When we saw the cow blocking the road we were like nope time to turn back. An animal selfie would be cool, I don’t mess with wildlife. Also a woman from Milwaukee recognized my Wisconsin shirt so we talked about Wisconsin and Football.
Hallgrimskirkjas outside is inspired by the basalt stones all around Iceland.
Basalt is a Stone that only happens in vulcanic areas.
You can find these stones nearly everywhere. Here in Snæfellsnes almost every mountain is made of basalt and we even have a wall of basalt stones in the middle of nowhere.
