Five summers ago, BA and I visited Iceland, taking advantage Icelandair’s policy of a free stopover on our way to Europe. We took four days exploring the southern part of the country. Our lodgings were set each night, and included two nights in a former elementary school that was now a small inn. Aside from that, where we went in our rental car and what we did was up to us. We love being out in nature, and Iceland has a lot of it. Glaciers, geysers, hot springs, volcanoes, all sorts of good stuff.
Foss means waterfall in Icelandic. These photos were taken at Skogafoss, which is just off the main road encircling the island. Skogafoss is not the biggest or most spectacular of the Icelandic cataracts, and its a lovely place to visit. There is a trail paralleling the falls leading to observation platforms along the way. I loved being able to overlook the falls, and enjoy the mist rising up, along with the rainbows forming in the mist. Ahhh! A fine place for a picnic.
We very much enjoyed our visit to Iceland and hope to return again, and extend our explorations.
