Friday morning we set out early to see a bit of Iceland before catching our 3:00 flight to San Francisco. We stopped at the Gullfoss Warterfall. The weather was windy and cold and the walkways were a bit icy. It is a pretty amazing waterfall.
Next we stopped at Geysir. Our tourist map calls it the best known geyser in the world because it leant it’s name to the English language to describe a periodically spouting hot spring.
The Keriō volcanic crater was our next stop.
We still had a bit of time so we stopped for a coffee in Reykjavik.
Our flight was uneventful. We were through immigration in San Francisco in about ten minutes and then caught BART to Walnut Creek where we had a special welcome!
Yesterday I attended and thoroughly enjoyed a New England Historical Genealogical Society all day conference in Oakland. One of the speakers was a genealogy rockstar Robert Charles Anderson.
This morning we caught. Amtrak home to Reno. It was a great trip. We plans to do our next big trip in the Spring. We are still deciding exactly where to go.
