Leave it to me to think it’s a good idea to visit Iceland in the winter.
Honestly though, it really was a good idea. Empty roads, lower prices, misty eerie landscapes. Like this one. It was an other-worldly experience slicing through the thick southern Iceland mist in our rental Subaru. Nearly out of nowhere, mountains would appear all around us as a suggestion of what was hidden on the other side of the wispy winter curtain.
