Ed and I arrived in the night, rented a car, and headed straight for the famous Geysir waterfall. Here is a sign warning that the water is actually boiling when it comes out of the ground!

After we arrived we were told that Geysir no longer erupts regularly but nearby Strokkur is one of the most consistent geysers in the world, erupting every 4-8 minutes.

The blast is usually over 50', and occasionally over double that.

Just up the road from Geysir and Strokkur is the amazing Gullfoss waterfall.

The spray from the waterfall turned this viewing area into a sheet of ice - walking was treacherous!

We rented a condo for the week in downtown Reykjavik off of airbnb.com. It was much nicer than staying in a hotel! We were just around the corner from the funky Hallgrímskirkja (Lutheran church).
