Some like it hot
Warning! Don't dip your toes in there.
We stopped for lunch at the N1 in Borgarnes before heading to Barnafoss waterfall to the northeast.

In Search of Aurora
Our crew headed eastward to try and get away from encroaching clouds. No luck. We got some aurora hues but that was it.

What's a little snow among friends
On our tour of Iceland, we visited an original Turf House. In the pasture next to the exhibit were a band of Icelandic horses waiting out the snow storm.
