It's a glacier!
id: 52219
The glacier used to be here but has been retreating. It's been retreating for a long time but it's gotten faster lately. When was the last time these rocks were exposed?
id: 52220
Lots of rocks and gouges in the landscape
id: 52221
Wandering out into the glacier path
id: 52222
A little rain nearby
id: 52223
Dirty ice
id: 52224
People are useful for scale around here
id: 52225
Big ice chunks floating
id: 52226
This moss and lichen is hanging in here
id: 52227
The glacier can be dangerous when pieces break off
id: 52228
Our tour guide asked us to not go past this sign but plenty of other people were down there. We scooted down for a quick look around but were ready to run
id: 52229
For scale, there is a small group of people on top of the glacier near the top-middle, just to the right

It's been a good trip! Topaz is a good traveling partner!
id: 52231
Trips are fun
id: 52232
I really can't get enough of this landscape
id: 52233
Science box?
id: 52234
Science.. drill?
id: 52235
Down at the water level, but just for a moment
id: 52236
Topaz didn't go all the way down to the water
id: 52237
Heading back up to safer ground
id: 52238
Ice and grass and dirt
id: 52239
Old rocks
id: 52240
And boulders! This is how boulders end up in random fields. Glaciers leave them behind
id: 52241
Ice and water shaping the landscape
id: 52242
Watch your step
id: 52243
What made that big crack?
id: 52244
Watch out for rolling boulders
id: 52245
These guys had bikes with super thick tires!
id: 52246
Goodbye, glacier!
id: 52247
More barren hills
id: 52248
Blue sky does exist here! And check out this truck heading across this thin bit of land!
id: 52249
One more waterfall
id: 52250
Pretty big!
id: 52251
Just sheets of water blasting the ground
id: 52252
Rock and water
id: 52253
Topaz and the waterfall
id: 52254
Of course, I got one too
id: 52255
Looking up at the waterfall
id: 52256
Topaz briefly ran down to ground zero
id: 52257
It didn't look pleasant
id: 52258
The slippery path to the waterfall
id: 52259
Behind the waterfall!
id: 52260
Lots of people stopping for photos
id: 52261
The last little path
id: 52262
Someone else clamoring back up
id: 52263
This is what the surface looks like when looking away from the waterfall
id: 52264
Just a quick shot because water was soaking the camera so quickly. In fact, later I had some trouble with some buttons malfunctioning but eventually fixed it
id: 52265
Waves of mist blasting off the water surface
id: 52266
Me and the back of the waterfall
id: 52267
So violent!
id: 52268
This rock is getting worn down
id: 52269
It was windy and noisy and wet
id: 52270
Back around the other side
id: 52271
Hey, no drones!
id: 52272
Well that was fun
id: 52273
Let's try some weird Icelandic drinks and snacks from our tour guide!
id: 52274
This was fine
