So yesterday was a lot of fun. I went with a group of 70 work people to see geysers, waterfalls, lava caves and trek up a glacier. Fun times!

There are a row of these little geysers that are apparently the most water producing geysers in Europe.

Here we are at the lava waterfalls. This area is much more beautiful when the autumn colors really explode in Oktober.

I had trouble climbing up and down here, but everybody else just strolled down like they were all part mountain goats.

This is the site from Viking times. Grettir the Strong hid the skull of a man he had murdered with an axe over a lunch dispute.

I had a lot of fun, even though my thighs are so sore I can barely move after my adventures in freaking rock climbing, at least I can say I did it. The glacier was amazing, just white as far as the eye can see. I´m really glad it's snowed over all the ash from the volcanic eruptions, the entire glacier was almost black until last year.
