Arresting water erosion and sleeping on the job

We spent today building water bars on one of the park’s paths, about 18 in total. They act as drainage channels to reduce water erosion on the paths.

    • Cheers Andy! I must admit I’m really looking forward to the end of this week. Can’t wait for a wee bit of R&R in Reykjavík this weekend before Greenland next week. I need to recover before some serious hiking at the end of the trip.
