Here’s a batch of extra photos from the trip. Not necessarily great, they don’t tell a story but they help to tell the whole story.
The Gerduberg cliffs, amazing basalt columns on Iceland’s Snaefellsnes peninsula
Seals keeping an eye on me at Ytritunga
These clouds look like UFOs hovering over the mountains.
The Black Church
Iceland’s Black Church or Budakirkja. Not a huge draw, but might as well see it while we’re here.
Get There From Here
A lot of nothing out here on the Snaefellsness Peninsula
Chamber of Commerce got us!
The Stykkisholmur Chamber of Commerce pranked us by getting this "lighthouse" in the attraction guide. Pretty much a non-starter, but a nice panoramic view of the out islands and the town.
Tourists without waterproof footwear take off their shoes and walk in freezing water up the slot canyon to Gljufurarfoss.
The hole in the canyon roof at Gljufurarfoss.
Shelby stops for a quick photo on the way out of Gljufurarfoss.
A Bunch of Horses
Since there’s a bunch of horses, let’s stop for a quick photo and bring the tourist herds in.
The Herd Effect
The minute we stopped to photograph any group of Icelandic horses, a horde of other cell phone and iPad-toting tourists stopped to get the same shot.
A memory photo of Rutshellir for Colette.
Kids at Skogafoss
Bracing against the raging wind at Dyhrolaey.
The lava golf balls at Eldhraun
The river running through Fjadragljufur.
Closer Frozen Cheese
A closer shot of the frozen cheese
The nothingness around us at Skaftafell. I think we voided our rental contract getting here.
The jagged edge of the ice at Jokukarlson
I don’t know where Shelby got that headscarf from.
Amazing how linear the edge of the ice is
Flowing blue river at Barnafoss
I’m not exactly sure what’s going on here.
Morning glow on Thingvallavatn lake.
Under the Arch
Water from the Oxararfoss waterfall flows under a snow arch.
Sometimes you just have to be silly.
Wind so strong we could barely stand up, but Gullfoss is still on the must-see list.
