Hotspring *Gunnuhver* Had a Major Eruption

Iceland Travel Agency:

“Gunnuhver is a extremely energetic geothermal area of mud swimming pools and steam vents on the southwest aspect of the Reykjanes Peninsula. Named after an indignant feminine ghost , Gudrun [! :-)], whose spirit was trapped in the hot springs by a priest 400 many years in the past, the steamy area has an eerie environment and an outstanding sulphur vapor.

… The colorful minerals in the ground present lively hues, but threat is incredibly actual with temperatures around 300°C (570°F) so it is crucial to tread evenly and stick to the trails. Iceland´s biggest mud pool resides at Gunnuhver it is twenty meters (65 ft) broad of violently boiling earth.”

>>I may perhaps add that the area is continuously switching, so website visitors have to be incredibly mindful.<<
