Halifoss and onward to Hrauneyjar

After a prompt departure from the city center, we were on our way to the Highlands.  The weather took a nice change and we made an impromptu stop at the 4th largest waterfall in Iceland.  It was great to get out and stretch out legs a bit and get the cameras working.  Our luck turned just a bit and we caught a break in the weather.

After photographing the waterfalls, we made our way to our lodge at Hrauneyjar.

Cheers and more to come from Iceland.

The Highlands of Iceland

It was a killer morning today, as we were up and loaded at 0300, with 0 meaning ‘oh my god it’s early’.  Everyone was ready to go and we were off in no time flat.  Although we had scouted the area yesterday afternoon in the nasty rain, Daniel, being the location master of Iceland, decided to head for a ridge line that we had not seen before.  Crossing three serious creeks (far too much water for me to call then a creek), we started our climb up and up.  Before you know it, a visual wonderland was before us.
