    ... plates meet. Although there is the option in warmer weather to dive between the two plates, you can also walk between two slabs of rock which meets the same purpose. It is very impressive to stand between the two. The colours around the national park were, once again, incredible. Very vibrant rust coloured plants in amongst bright green moss. It is a spectacular drive. Heading back into Selfoss, we decided we had better ...

    ... shore line and touched icebergs that ended up there. The current was strong and pushed the ice along at a good clip. This was a beautiful spot where we spent a lot of time just taking it all in. Some boats bring tourists out to see them up close too. Eventually we headed back to the car and headed to the Skaftafell waterfall. This is part of the Vatnajokull National Park and also where the volcano Bardarbunga is currently erupting.

    ... a wide variety of reds, yellows, greys, and browns. With the constant addition of rainwater leaching into the cavern, it was damp and cool. The lights were fairly bright, but the volume is pretty huge, so the overall effect is one of intimacy and grandeur together. After about a half hour and several hundred photographic experiments, we loaded back into the cage and returned to the outside world, changed for the better by the unique experience. After a ...

    ... beach with the iceberg fragments floating ashore and leaving sparkly diamond-like pieces on the sand. There were several seals playing around offshore but none stayed around long enough for a mug shot.

    A bit further along towards Reyjkavik is a second smaller glacier lagoon with icebergs. This was our lunch stop with a great view. We liked it a lot better than the famous one because the smaller size let you absorb it all in one view.
