Day 14 in Iceland the Golden Circle and Bruarfoss

When we left off at the end of Day 13, we were in the middle of a gale force rain storm. But luckily Day 14 dawned with the skies clearing, and the sun trying to poke out. We were excited for a nicer day, at least for most of it since it was supposed to start raining again late in … Read More
