I believe I can fly! A 70 year old Gandalf with 15 Grandkids leaping 3 meters into the air. High on sulphur fumes from fumaroles in the Namafjall Hvrir volcanic region in North Iceland.

Hank's buddy, Yusuf Hashim globe-trotter extraordinaire is just back from his most recent adventure in Iceland. His Photo-Safari outings with a dozen or so 'photo tourists' cover off-roads scenic locations. Hank earlier highlighted some of them (YH#1 YH#2 YH#3 YH#4 YH#5 YH#6)
Today it is the man himself with a sprinkling of earlier snapshots. Just a sampling of previous photos but more than enough to know how active and interesting a soul he is. One who is enjoying life to the fullest physically and able to withstand the vigor of a youngster at age 70!

Image: 4 Rainbow over Route 40 in Western Argentina
Yusuf Hashim says:
The loneliest road in the world that I've driven through is Route 40 in Western Argentina, which stretches 5000 kilometers from La Quiaca in Jujuy Province in the north, to Rio Gallegos in Santa Cruz Province in the South. Running parallel to the Andes Mountains, its height at Rio Gallegos in the south is at sea level. It passes through 20 national parks, 18 major rivers, 27 passes in the Andes, and it reaches a height of 5000 meters or 16,404 feet at Abra del Acay in Salta. Mount Acongcagua, the highest mountain in the Americas, can be clearly seen about 120 km from In a 500 kilometers stretch in the sparsely populated south, we saw only 4 other vehicles apart from our own. And one of them was a car that had broken down, which our team mechanic helped to repair so that it could safely continue its journey northwards. Like in the Makgadigadi Pan in Botswana, and the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, there is great beauty in emptiness. I shot this rainbow through the windscreen of my car on Route 40 south of Patagonia.
