The ladder in the pictures allows hikers over the protective fence, if they care to hike off into the wilderness over the mountain and into the glaciers. That idea is still scary to me, but I do love a good hike, so maybe someday I'll go back-glacier backpacking, who knows! We did indeed meet a backpacker who was doing just that.
Seljalandsfoss is equally intimidating, but the wonder of it lies more in the trail that runs along the rocks behind it. In the last picture directly above the text, I'm in the lower right quadrant of the photo. HUMONGOUS WATERFALL.
I need to get back into the swing of blogging about everyday life and creative endeavors; I've been in sort of a summer slow-down and haven't done much that's visually bloggable. I've had my entries about Europe written up for weeks, so they're easier to throw onto the blog, but I really need to get myself to do more about what I've been sewing, reading, etc. Instagram is so much easier than blogging; it makes me lazy. Plus sometimes I just don't feel terribly bloggy, you know? :)
