The Golden Circle

The Golden Circle is one of the more famous day trips out of Reykjavik.  We made it our first stop on our road trip around the island.  The first stop was Þingvellir National Park, where the North American and European tectonic plates meet. We definitely didn’t allot enough time here, but at the same time, the weather was not cooperating either.  When I go there again, I would definitely want to check out more trails and possibly try out the snorkeling/scuba diving that everyone talks about.  Next was Geysir, which is what all other geysers are named after.  Only Strokkur still regularly goes off in this area, but it was cool to see nonetheless.  Last stop of the Golden Circle was Gullfoss, which is one of the many waterfalls that Iceland is known for.  Unfortunately, the wind was brutally whipping the mist around, allowing me to get fewer photographs than I had hoped.
