The 2014 Billmeyer family vacation was an Icelandic camping adventure. 10 days, 9 people, 2 RVs, thousands of sheep, millions of waterfalls, and more landscapes than I ever imagined. We saw volcanoes, glaciers, geysers, lava fields, geothermal pools and mud pits, farmland, mountains, fjords, tiny harbor towns, and big cities. I took a lot of photos. I mean, a lot. And even though we've been home for over a week, I'm just now getting them onto the computer and only starting to sort through them all. I'll be sharing them in small batches, and I hope it's not too boring for any of the readers this little blog has left.
These first few are from our first day in Iceland. After a long, (mostly) sleepless flight, we started our drive around the island and stopped at the first interesting thing we saw – a crater. A deep crater filled with icy-cold, blue-green water. For Iceland, just a typical roadside attraction. There was a hiking path. We stretched our legs.
