|Trolls contemplating life|
Another story of the formations goes like this (this is how Jon told it):
A family of trolls used to live in the fields and rocks where these formations are now. They were a mom, dad, and a teenager troll. One day the mom and dad decided they wanted to go to Reykjavik to gobble up some humans. The teenager, being a typical "stay away from me" sort of teen, asked if he could stay home. The parents agreed as long as he didn't throw any parties. Of course he didn't listen. He threw this huge party and everyone was having such a great time, they didn't realize the sun was coming up. Trolls turn into rocks, you see, once the sun hits them. The parents returned from Reykjavik to find a huge field of stones where their house used to be, and their son and all his friends had turned to stone.
