Offbeat: Butterscotch's Tale - Iceland Day 5


Day 5: North Iceland... the land of ice and fire...

Campsite: Dettifoss Waterfall

We woke up to a snow storm...-1 degree Celsius! But we layered enough to stay warm...just enough...๐Ÿ˜…...car camping by the waterfall is not recommended for everyone.

It snowed when we woke up...

Dettifoss: One of the most powerful waterfall in Europe! 400 m3/s!

It's snowing! 0 degrees during our hike between the waterfalls ๐Ÿ˜‚

It was fun to hike in the snow going over

all the rocks๐Ÿ˜†

Selfoss

One of our favorite! Only 11m tall, but it spread out many smaller waterfalls ๐Ÿ˜

My favorite too! Especially the waterfall is over geometric basalt columns, what a sight to see!

Beautiful canyon...

Grjotagja: Geothermally heated...but still too hot to bath...we forgot to bring our eggs to boiled. ๐Ÿ˜†

I almost wanted to jump in but then it would've been the most horrifying swim of my life๐Ÿ™€

It's so blue!!!

Contemplating jumping in for a dip ๐Ÿ˜Š

I wanted to take a dip... but I might not return...๐Ÿ˜†

Fissure on top of the cave.

You have to see the fissure in person to believe it!! A large crack in the earth caused by geothermic heat, I was amazed ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Sheep enjoying the warmth from the geothermal ground.

Hverfjall:

It's the climb...

Windy, snowing, and freezing...๐Ÿ˜…... it's so strange the bottom emit so much heat.
