    Remote Campsite

    I'm guessing there will be more remote camp sites, but this one felt very isolated... We drove for 30 minutes down a dirt road in heavy mist to reach a camp site surrounded by mountains, very special. Went for a walk and then sorted out some photos on the iPad in the"dining room" which was a natural cave with tea light candles around ...

    Day 8 – The Waterfall and the Sod Museum:

    ... odd but I guess the terrain here required special machinery. One of the things that had me laughing was a switchboard and some really old phones. Arnold said that when he came here in the sixties, these were still in use in Iceland! We even saw parts of a generator run by the thermal power plants of old. With this much easily accessible thermal power, they don’t have to worry about water running low like we do at our power plant in Ketchikan. The trucks they had ...

    ... in the group and all you’ll see are huge smiles! Now I know what stars feel like with the paparazzi following them around taking pictures constantly.

    We really did work because some horses wanted to take off in different directions and we would have to take off after them, head them off, and get them to rejoin the herd. This was all at a pretty fast pace that we rode. Along the way, we stopped four times to change horses so our horses could get a rest. ...

    ... view of the area and can see the ocean in all its glory. What a view! There are cows up here and these could definitely benefit from bras! We rode down the mountain via a different path and went to the waterfall we walked to the day before on our evening walk.

    The waterfall is beautiful and the water cold. Tammy wanted to taste the water here but we didn’t stay long. We have been told that you can drink from any river with clear water here. They have no ...
