Iceland is truly the land of fire and ice. It is enchanting, beautiful, varied, and feels like what I would imagine the moon is like.
Slideshow of beautiful Iceland. Followed by individual photos.
We noted that the interior of Iceland is barren land composed mostly of lava rock for miles and miles over hills and mountains. But then, all of a sudden just at the riverbed, which was basically dry at the time, we encountered these lavender beauties. These flowers are called Arctic River Beauties.
This is a fumarole (an opening in or near a volcano, through which hot sulfurous gases emerge)
In Iceland we saw cows, horses, a couple of roosters, and lots of Icelandic Sheep on the countryside. But, most of the time when trying to get a photo of a sheep, we were presented with their back end. Occasionally, we got lucky with one looking at the camera!
Here is one of the surprise rainbows.
Though we experienced lots of rain, there were lots of rainbows that followed the rain.
