The Golden Circle tour - Part 2

The third stop was the Geysir geothermal area, home of the famous Strokkur geyser that shoots up almost 100 feet in the air every 4-7 minutes.   It's an interesting site to see the steam rising in pockets everywhere, then there is the amazing orange clay, contrasted agains beautiful greenery.    A very interesting site to see.  The water is beyond the boiling point, so too hot to touch!  Luckily there is the Blue Lagoon area, in Grindavik for some nice warm water soaking.  But more about the Blue Lagoon later.

Don't touch the water!

The final stop was the Thingvellir National Park.   But it deserves it's own posting.
