In a land green with meadows and pure glacier melt streams, I tölt across lava flows beneath the Arctic Circle, climb into high geothermal plains and traverse the mid-Atlantic Ridge continental plates on hearty Icelandic ponies. Jaeja! A remount herd, half-wild and running free, followed across this land of ice and fire.
