As you are driving along the south coast of Iceland (going towards Reykjavík) you pass through Myrdalssandur, a huge expanse of nothing but coarse black volcanic sand. Af the end, as the landscape turns back into rugged vegetation, you come upon Laufskalavarda. This is a small mound by the road, where over time travelers made little cairns for good luck. There are so many cairns that it’s actually hard to find a loose rock to stack.
