    ... We then had a 2 hour wait for our car rental. Coffee and sklar for breakfast. We got an upgrade for free and off we went- headed toward Vik. The airport area and Reykjavik are pretty populated, and industrial bit once we hit the route 1 the scenery changed dramatically. Lots of old volcano fields, like in Hawaii. Our first stop on the road to Vik was Skogafoss. This was a beautiful spot with multiple waterfalls going on. The largest one had ...

    ... were crevasses forming from the runoff but nothing serious. Something on the order of a low cloud/fog/light rain moved in so I think our expedition might have been cut a bit short. we did not go up to the ice fall.

    ... interesting things we did today it was visiting the area where the volcano Eyjafjallajokull erupted back in 2010. The visitor center had a really good movie showing what happened and how it impacted the people in the area. I didn't realize before coming to Iceland just how many volcanoes they had. Eyjafjallajokull is not the only active one several others have also rumbled to life over the past ten ...
