Saeli and his superjeep at Langidalur, Þórsmörk Saeli said this is the gates to Mordor, Þórsmörk Gígjökull, Þórsmörk  This glacier played a key part in the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull. The ground that Brenda Selwyn and Laurence Selwyn are standing is ash fallout from the eruption which fills what used to be a 50m deep lake. The weather was not good so we could not go to where we had originally booked. In this  video  Saeli describes the eruption a few months after it happened.
