Fun facts: Dettifoss is one of the most powerful waterfalls in Europe and the movie Prometheus was filmed here. #nofilter #dettifoss #waterfall #doublerainbow #blueskies #filmlocation #prometheus #goexplore #hiking #godsbeauty #majestic #landscape #daysix #memoirsoficeland #icelandadventures #iceland2016

Pseudocraters can be seen all around Lake Mývatn and they also make up the majority of islands in the lake. (Side note: we got attacked by hundreds of midges while walking around...but it was worth it.) #lakemyvatn #skutustadir #pseudocraters #lavafield #mountains #blueskies #attackofthemidges #midges #worthit #goexplore #hiking #landscape #godsbeauty #dayfive #memoirsoficeland #icelandadventures #iceland2016

Terrain can change quickly in Iceland. A few hours away from the coast lies the sulfur springs and boiling mud pits of Hverarönd, which is located at the bottom of Námaskarð Pass. #hverarönd #hverarond #namaskard #lakemyvatn #sulfursprings #sulfurfields #sulfursteam #sulfursmells #iamstillsmellingit #mudpits #boilingmudpits #steam #hotrocks #terrainchange #landscape #godsbeauty #dayfive #memoirsoficeland #icelandadventures #iceland2016

Diamond Beach - Icebergs from Jökulsárlón Lagoon slowly break apart and make their way to the ocean. The waves then push chunks of crystal clear ice onto the volcanic black sand. #nofilter #diamondbeach #ice #icechunks #blacksand #volcanicblacksand #ocean #oceanwaves #landscape #godsbeauty #dayfour #memoirsoficeland #icelandadventures #iceland2016

It's hard to tell in pictures, but these icebergs were massive. (Find the tiny people on the right side of the lagoon to put them into perspective.) #jokulsarlon #jokulsarlonlagoon #icebergs #blueice #massive #mistymountains #landscape #godsbeauty #dayfour #memoirsoficeland #icelandadventures #iceland2016

People told me I would be amazed, but I had to experience it for myself to truly believe. Glacier hiking in Svínafellsjökull really was like stepping into a whole new world. Guess that is the reason Batman Begins, Interstellar and so many other movies were filmed here. #glacierhike #glacier #svinafellsjokull #wholenewworld #differentplanet #ice #volcanicash #filmlocation #batmanbegins #interstellar #goexplore #adventure #safetyfirst #godsbeauty #dayfour #memoirsoficeland #icelandadventures #iceland2016

God was constantly reminding us that we had nothing to worry about on this trip...even if the airport lost our bag (it was eventually found) and the muffler on the car decided to fall off (that's a great story for another time)...He is in control and watching out for us. ❤️ "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." -Lamentations 3:22-23

Gljúfrafoss - this waterfall may not seem like much from the outside, but once we walked through the crevice, our breath was taken away. #gljúfrafoss #gljufrabui #unique #powerful #majestic #waterfall #foilage #crevice #godsbeauty #daythree #memoirsoficeland #icelandadventures #iceland2016

Even though it was cold and we got completely soaked, this was one of our favorite mornings. We followed a tiny footpath and walked behind the waterfall. #worthit #oneofakind #seljalandsfoss #waterfall #landscape #godsbeauty #daythree #memoirsoficeland #icelandadventures #iceland2016
