Offbeat: Butterscotch's Tale - Iceland Day 2


Day 2: When life makes you take a detour...just go along with it...


Campsite: Instead of camping like we had planned...we ended up spending the evening waiting for the Midnight Sun at Hjörleifshöfði Cave...due to the fact that our car got stuck trying to get to Pakgil campground...🤦‍♀️

BTW -  4WD is highly recommended if you plan to go on heavy grovel roads...😅

But all was not lost, we decided to have whiskey and dinner by this picturesque location. 


Brennivin... the more shots you take... the better it becomes...

The drive to Krysuvik was beautiful! Black sand everywhere! The landscapes never cease to amaze us! 


First Stop: Up close, Geothermal action! 


I love how Iceland makes all sites so travel friendly! Look at those beautiful stairs! American National Parks need to step up! 


Smelled like spoiled eggs... but gosh it's beautiful! 


Hotspring: Reykjadalur Hot Springs - Butterscotch can't soak... but he got to watch. 😊


One does not do Hotspring without a whiskey Flask by their side...😆



There's sheep everywhere! 😍😍😍 The one above had triplets! 😆

The land is alive! So much Geothermic activity! It's a wonder the birds don't accidentally fall in. Would've made a great lunch!

For those who doesn't want to do the full 4 mile hike can rent an Icelandic Horse for the first part of the trip. They are short and bulky!
