Vatnajökull Glacier

I have always loved glaciers, and it's been a dream of mine to actually visit one in person. In Iceland I decided to visit Vatnajökull, which is the largest glacier outside the polar ice caps. One tongue of the glacier called Flaajokull was near Brunnholl Farm, so I hiked there...there were no other people around so I amazingly had the glacier all to myself!

Close ups of the ice...

Here I am sitting on top of the glacier. It was way too slick to walk on in regular boots!
