Evans drove the ring road, around the Vatnajökull Glacier in Iceland and toured the Jökulsárlón lagoon, where the Breiðamerkurjökull tongue of the Vatnajökull glacier meets the Atlantic Ocean. In the 1930’s the glacier reached almost to the ocean and now because of glacial retreat one must travel 1.5 kilometers by boat to the glaciers edge. As the glacier melts the lagoon grows, four-fold since 1970, icebergs calve off and float through the lagoon. When they are small enough they wash out to sea under the ring road bridge where they break up in the surf and wash back up onto Jökulsárlón black sand beach as ice diamonds.
