Hiking in Fludir and Soaking in the Secret Lagoon

I am home now!  Have a few blog posts that will be coming out because there are still photos and ideas to share.   Here are photos from a hike in Fludir and a visit to the Secret Lagoon.  What can I say?  We had a magical day as you will see from the photos.

But I have to say, it sure is nice to come home to sunshine and October warmth!  Feels like a summer day here in Seattle after being in Iceland!  We left Iceland on the first day of snow in the lowlands and came back to a 72 degree day in Seattle!

Anita climbing up on our day hike. I noticed she was never winded, just relaxed breathing the whole way up (we hiked about 40 minutes up and admired the views from the top for a while before hiking back down).

We probably saw at least one rainbow per day. On the hiking day, we saw many. Here is one from the view at the top on our hike.

My best shot from the viewpoint! Look at all those shades of green!

Bundled up! It was cold up there. We were always prepared for the weather.

One of my favorite moss shots! Moss growing over volcanic rock at the Secret Lagoon.

Love this place, the Secret Lagoon. Best of all the hot springs visited (for me).
