... the Visitor's Center was open (it opens at 10:00am after September 15). We had the pleasure of exploring the geothermal sites of Geysir pretty much all by ourselves. It was lovely!

It was a victim of the financial crisis and sat partially completed for some years before the goverment stepped in and funded ...
... mustard, special Icelandic sauce, raw onions and fried onions. The fried onions were my favorite part! :)
The park was beautiful, even in the rain. Sandi decided to take a hike to the rift, I opted for a nap in the car. It was cold and rainy and my hip was hurting!
This park is important because it is the site of the original Parliament meetings.
