Iceland — “An under-populated island marooned near the top of the globe, Iceland is, literally, a country in the making. It’s a vast volcanic laboratory where mighty forces shape the earth: geysers gush, mudpots gloop, ice-covered volcanoes rumble and glaciers grind great pathways through the mountains. Its supercharged splendour seems designed to remind visitors of their utter insignificance in the greater scheme of things. And it works a treat: some crisp clean air, an eyeful of the cinematic landscapes, and everyone is transfixed.”
And I am going there to trek the scenic beauty of its trails, from Landmannalaugar to Thorsmörk and Fimmvörduháls Volcano!
I am joining a group that includes our friend and fellow adventurer from Idaho, Joan Whitacre, departing August 15 for Reykjavik, and will be trekking for 6 days. What an opportunity!
