Iceland-Land of Ocean, Waterfalls, and Lonely Landscapes
This is the Vatnajökull Glacier, the largest ice cap in Europe. My daughter and her friends went snowmobiling on it, which they said was great fun. I guess they didn't worry about crevasses opening up in front of them. Meanwhile, there are volcanos under the glacier, which seems weird to me.
The natural wonders of Iceland remind me a bit of Yellowstone National Park in the western US. Here's the Geysir Hot Spring.This has existed for at least 10,000 years. I was happy to see a word I recognized. It turns out that our word geyser (for hot spring) comes from Iceland. The Icelandic verb is 'geysa' meaning, 'to gush'. This geyser erupts randomly.
Have any of you been to Iceland?
