Nipple hills
This is a small mound in the south of Iceland, right by the Ring Road. If you look carefully you’ll see a small mini mound on the top. You could see the whole hill as a breast and the mini mound as a nipple. Anyways, the nipple is created by birds. In Iceland’s treeless landscape the birds like to land on the highest point they can find for a good view. Since generation after generation of birds will land on this exact spot, their droppings will collect into a very grassy fertile mound. Take note of our nipples when you drive around Iceland.
