Fire and Ice – May 1 – 18, 2021 — Iceland

By Tom Allin

I can’t help myself. Even though we saw the Ice and then the Fire I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to borrow a Pat Benatar song title for my own blogging title. So, some pictures of fire and Ice in reverse order of the song.

Even though we were traveling Iceland in early May and everyone was telling us how lucky we were that the weather was so great we still saw lots of ice and drove through rain, hail and snow on two different days.

This is Dettifoss Waterfall.  If it looks like it is moving in the photograph it is the waterfall.  Pretty much everything else is ice including the ice on the other side of the railing and the icicles on the railing.  Roughly a two-mile round trip going down and then back up that includes 240 stairs and rocks covered with snow or ice.  Nancy was the smart one and after about five minutes turned around to save her legs for the remainder of the day.  I on the other hand not being smart made the trip down just so I could experience the freezing waterfall mist blowing into my face while trying to take a photograph.
