    We awoke to a really remarkable view of green mountains and a sky that hinted at sunniness to come during the day. When turned away from the city side of this region, the landscape is truly impressive. The green on the slopes is not from trees (of which there are quite few), but from grasses and the spongy moss that seems to be everywhere. After …

    ... waterfall and then a farm that was covered in ash from the recent volcanic activity but was saved from ruin by tourists wanting to see what had happened.

    Then onto Skogafoss for a huge waterfall experience.

    Onto the back pebbles which turned into black sand as we got closer to the beach. Black basalt columns and caves.

    ... place has tons of little churches! I am told that every small group of farms has their own church so this is why there are so many!

    We stopped for a burger lunch at a place called Skaftarskali that I can only surmise translates to Wendy’s or something like that.

    ... understand why. Also, the only trees growing in Iceland have been planted by the people here. Back in the early days of whaling, they used firewood to render the fat from whales for oil for lamps and such. They had such a need for firewood, they ended up deforesting the entire country. They now have programs where students go out and plant trees and people do on their property as well. I thought the trees growing in neat rows were kind of weird till I ...

    ... attraction and the place is littered with cars and people that just make it too hard to do with horses. We are going to see even bigger waterfalls later so no big deal.

    We had a few water crossings along the way and the horses just trudged across with no problem. The embankments we had to go down and up from were a little scary especially for a guy with my limited experience. Going down you have to lean back and make sure to lean forward before the horse ...
