Over the August bank holiday weekend, Keenan and I along with another couple friend took a little road trip to enjoy the wild beauty of Iceland. Everyone should go to Iceland at least once in their life; it's quite unique and very different from all the places we visited in Europe. It's wild with varied landscapes and natural formations from moss-covered lava fields, spectacular waterfalls, geyers, plate tectonics, and massive glaciers. Without further ado, some photo highlights from our Iceland road-trippin' tour.
Driving Tour 1 - Golden Circle: Þingvellir, Gullfoss, and the Geyers, plus Kerið, a volcanic crater.
First stop: Þingvellir, site of the a rift valley marking the mid-Atlantic Ridge. Our friends and us at Öxarárfoss waterfall
Geysers! It erupted fairly frequently.
