After going Route 1 North out of Reykjavik for
about an hour (a costly mistake with such a
distance to Gulfoss, an impending blizzard and
only 5+ hours of light for the whole day!), I
ran across this beautiful scene of the unique
these Icelandic horses in the foreground of
an even more unique backdrop.

My loyal little Toyota corolla.  This baby
served me well, studded winter tires,
5 speed manual transmission, she did well.
In Reykjavik, I filled the tank, and it cost
$33 US dollars!  It is not cheap in a country
that must import everything... a McDonald's
Big Mac meal costs over $9 US!

The Icelandic Horse.  They say when this
horse reaches a fast canter, the gait
smooths out to such a degree, one can
carry a tray of full wine glasses
without spilling a drop!

The Iceland roads, this is just about
20 minutes North of Reykjavik.  Very
barren, very white, very interesting.

This, being Route 1, is the main
thoroughfare north of Reykjavik, as
can be seen by how clear this road is.

I skidded off the road here, so it
was a nice enough
reminder of the occasion.
