2 1/2 days in Reykjavik

Our summer travels began with a 2 1/2 day stop over in Reykjavik, Iceland.  We spent our short time there walking around the city and then embarked on a bus tour into the Thingvelir National Forest.

View of Reykjavik from the church steeple.

One stop on the bus tour - geysers!

The photo above is of "Litle-Geysir" or "Little Geyser".  The oldest geyser in Iceland is named "Geysir", hence the root of the word commonly used today for these.  Geysir is no longer active, and Litl-Geysir has yet to be active.
