Waterfalls and Geysirs

While on all of our other excursions we were lucky enough to see a bunch of pretty waterfalls in Iceland.

This waterfall (Gullfoss) was my favorite one we saw. It kind of reminded us of a little Niagara falls.

Unfortunately having been to Yellowstone earlier this year we were a little unimpressed with the geothermal activity we saw in Iceland. Plus the weather was so crappy that everything looked a little meh in our pictures. Though I do have to say the water everywhere smelling like rotten eggs was a real treat lol. I would shower and even my clean hair would smell like rotten eggs!

There was a lot of steam coming off of here but you can’t really tell because it was so overcast and starting to get dark.

This really reminded us of all the geothermal pools we saw at Yellowstone.

This one was really clear blue colored in the middle.

So much of the time we spent in Iceland everything was just white as far as you could see. It was sometimes hard to tell what was ground, what was mountains, and what was sky!

This national park was cool because it is located at the divide between the North American plate and the European plate.

It was so slippery walking out to this waterfall, all of the rocks were covered with ice.

It was neat getting to see some of the waterfalls in Iceland. I personally enjoyed that they were just mixed in with the other activities that we did, as I wouldn’t want to do a day trip that just went from one waterfall to another. It was pretty funny though because by the end of the trip we had seen each of these waterfalls several times lol.
