Viewing Post for: Fire and Ice: Iceland

Date: Monday, August 15, 6 pm. 6 hour hike.
Location: The amazing Porsmork National Park

Currently sitting in lodge typing.

So last night they were calling for high winds and heavy rain. The vehicles left so as not to be stuck here. It did get rainy and windy, but not too bad.

So we rose to hike an amazing ridge. As we ascended you can see two huge icecaps and the descending glaciers across the precipitous valley. Gargoyles, trolls and other shapes drifted in and out of the mists on the lava flows we were walking.

We ate lunch in the Trolls Cathedral to stay dry. No wind though and a great hiking temperature. One group went to summit and as they did the sun pushed through the clouds. Fantastic. So hard to describe the beauty here.

Hopefully the river has crested so we can leave tomorrow.

We will let you know.

Thanks to the good fairy who acknowledged that messages are getting through - is there some means of having messages returned from the North? Today, right now, it's pouring with rain and it's delicious. Tonight I meet Paul and Helen (Irene is begging out) at Amore's which is good. All is going well. There is a new movie with Meryl Streep I want to see this weekend - it was a GEVA play that was wonderful. Carry on, and return a message or two, dearie, if and when you can. love,love, Mary

We missed you this morning. Our week on Chincoteague Island was relaxing and it sounds as if your adventure is anything but! I have your notecards and when I drop them off I'll bring my laptop along to show Paul the photos. Love Karen

We could still use some of that Iceland rain! I had a fun swim across the lake and made it up and back from Old Forge on Sunday. It also poured there. The boys are safely in CT and I am back at home with Todd for a week much work! The ridge in Iceland looks amazing. I hope you are having a wonderful time soaking in all the amazing views. Hopefully you do not need to build a snow cave. xoxo Tara
