Postcard, The eruption in 2010 in FimmvÃ¶rÃ°uhÃ¡ls. A few weeks later EyjafjallajÃ¶kull erupted
Text on back of card: Night view of Skógafoss (waterfall) and the volcanic eruption at Fimmvörðuháls, a mountain pass between Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull glaciers in the south of Iceland. The eruption began March 20th, 2010 and ended on April 13th of the same year. Considered a relatively mild lava eruption, many people flocked to witness it and were able to experience its wonders at close range. One of the distinguishing characteristics of the eruption was a spectacular 200 meter “lavafall”, the highest ever recorded. The day after the eruption ended a newer, much more powerful eruption began a few kilometers to the west in the Eyjafjallajökull glacier.
