While we went in several different directions today—from a tunnel under a glacier to a thermal hot water spa—to the dramatic Hraunfossar waterfalls streaming out of the basalt, there was no wrong direction. We also learned that Icelandic motor coach drivers stop for ducklings crossing the road, thank goodness!

Summer wildflowers bloomed along the roadside and trailside, providing splashes of color to a vivid green landscape. A moody sky produced rainsqualls followed by vivid rainbows.
