Colours and YES

Just east of Mývatn by Námafjall Mountain is the high-temperature area Hverarönd. The site is only 500 km / 300 m away from Reykjavík. Hverarönd lies on an eruption zone that extends north from Öxarfjörður through Þeystareykir to Krafla and south of Hverfjall, the characteristic mountain of Lake Mývatn. In the Middle Ages, much sulfur was mined from Námafjall / Hverarönd and exported for ammunition. The owners of Reykjahlíð by Lake Mývatn were so successful in selling sulfur that the King of Denmark expropriated the mines in 1563. Hverarönd and Mývatn were protected in 1974, as the area is one of Iceland’s ten most visited tourist destinations.

He asked her by a hot spring; the answer was YES—tourists from Canada. Congratulations.
