One of the last weekends in August, and we got an absolutely stellar afternoon. Tanja and I went to go and explore one of the other ways up Esja. We turned onto the wrong ridge, and ended up just going up to a spur, and sitting in the sun for a while. Had the mountain pretty much to ourselves by not being on the main path. We could see Snæfellsjökull in one direction and Hekla in the other.
