    The drive to Fljotsdalur is less then an hour from Skogar. Along the way I pass two horses running. They were quite captivating as you can see from the pictures. They must have ran all out for ten+ minutes. They disappeared into the distance like they heard the dinner bell ring from miles away.

    Fljotsdalur is the first hostel I've been to …

    ... hills...with its curving hills of mossy green lava stones...with its countless waterfalls of every height and shape you can imagine...with its sheer towering cliffs...with its white clouds of steam raising from numerous hot springs...and - how could words describe a million shades of green color?...

    Mummi did a great job telling stories of the area and even told us a funny story that had us laughing. The story is about a criminal on the run who hid out in some caves Mummi showed us. I guess his pursuers thought they would outlast him instead of going into the caves after him. They figured he would run out of food soon. After three days, the criminal threw out a leg ...

    ... not to be repeated!

    We were given instructions on how to ride with the herd and assigned our positions. Some of us will ride in the front and the rest in the back.
