Road trip in Iceland: Sólheimajökull Glacier

8 06 2014

Here’s a view of the Sólheimajökull Glacier with that beautiful lime green moss along the walking trail. The cloud cover stayed over the mountains (and we got rained on at the end of the trail) all morning but the other half of the sky was bright blue!

Road trip in Iceland: Greener than Greenland

8 06 2014

Iceland is greener than Greenland (or so I’ve read). This color abounds in my travels—such a happy shade of green! Yesterday morning I captured this shot on the walking trail to the Solheimajokull Glacier (actually called a glacier snout), in the southwestern outlet of the Myrdalsjokull icecap. River Jokulsa discharges it, and is sometimes called “The Stinking River” because of its emission of sulphuric acid from sub-glacial high temperature areas. (It didn’t stink, by the way.)
