... water and a couple bananas.

The waterfall at Skogafoss was beautiful and we knew we were in the right place when we spotted the cascading water from the highway and then immediately also saw no less than 10 tour buses lined up as well.

Just a few miles past the grocery store, we saw another waterfall off in the distance so we decided to check it out, and, I'm ...

... did climb the 434 steps to witness the view.

Near this was the Skogar Folk Museum. This was started when Thordur Tomasson was 14 and he now is 92 and going strong. He has collected many artifacts that are now on display.

The museum had boats, clothes, jewellery, agricultural ...
