    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.

I have to say that it was really clean tasting and seemed both colder and slower to melt then other ice I have had.

    ... at the end of the canyon and drank some water right off the waterfall. The water was delicious!
