Kirkjubæjarklaustur, Iceland: The Church Floor

Say hello to part of "The Church Floor." This has nothing to do with a church, and it's not a floor. But otherwise, it fits.

These are columns of basalt outcrop, which have been smoothed over the years by the elements. As a result, they really do look man-made ... hence, the name. The columns usually have six sides, but one of them had 10 - although we couldn't find it.

The town probably has the longest name of any place I've ever visited for a night's duration. I guess the natives call it Klauster, which is just fine with me. There are only 120 people who live there, but it is close to a national park and has some valuable services such as hotels, gas station, post office, etc. That means plenty of tourists pass through. ]
