    ... this stuff). The first one was very tall and we could walk behind it - got soaked! We couldn't walk behind the second one, but could climb to the top (hello stadium badge), where there were even more waterfalls and awesome views. These waterfalls were near the well-known Eyjafjallajokul volcano with a glacier on top (it erupted in 2011) - so we got a great view of that. We spent some time just relaxing, then headed on to Vik!

    ... tiny and usually only a couple of rooms without much storage space. Most had these really thick walls made of rock that then had earth against them and some type of earthen roof? I guess all that acted as insulation to keep the harsh weather out. We wandered about for a while admiring tiny blacksmith shops and other places which were clearly intended as workshops of some kind or the other before hitting the road again. I should mention something I have been ...

    So, our first ride of the day is going to be about 4 hours straight up into the mountains of Thorsmork to see the backcountry. This ride is being led by none other than Mummi himself. His real name is Goodmunder or something like that. Since we had trouble with the real name and some of us thought it sounded more like Goodmother, we figured Mummi works just fine. Mummi is the owner of the farm, Skalakot, we are staying at and very knowledgeable of the area since ...

    Another day on the farm; another hardy breakfast. We have been told that today we will be moving a herd of horses to Thorsmork. At this point, I'm thinking they are going to have us take a few horses a mile down the road and then say there, now you are Icelandic cowboys. You know; the same typical tourist thing they do to tourists everywhere else. Well, was I wrong! It turns out we are moving about thirty to forty horses including some young unbroken horses from ...

    ... for riding into the deep part of the river. She was very good-natured about it and kept saying she had just crossed at that spot the day before. That’s when Mummi, the farm owner, told her that he is the one that dug out that spot with the backhoe!

    After lunch our next ride will be up the mountain right behind the farm. This will mostly be walking, as it looks pretty tough to get up there. Siri says it should be about an hour and a half ride. Not all of ...
