More Iceland



B is back, and I finally had some time to look through all his photos from the trip. Iceland really looks like an amazing place. B will be posting geologic photos to a new blog he is getting ready, but I'm still posting some of his photos here.


Doesn't this look like an Icelandic troll coming up out of the moss-covered lava field?


Here you can see lava formations sticking out of the water right along the mid-atlantic ridge as it approaches the island.


One of many glaciers.


Icelandic horse.


Icelandic sheep.


Geysir--the oldest known geyser.


A few people hoping to see Geysir erupt (good luck!).


Strokkur is a lot more reliable.











What a beautiful place! I'm glad B had the chance to go.

What beautiful country. Too bad you couldn't tag along with B. I guess our traveling days lie in the future, and we can use our imaginations in the meantime.
