Iceland has been called the “Land of 10,000 Waterfalls”. Although the actual number is unknown, waterfalls are numerous due to abundant rainfall and glacial ice melt in summer.  “Foss” at the end of a word means waterfall in Icelandic.  These waterfalls are spectacular!

      We got home a week ago and I am now starting to sort through the pictures. We were on the go from early morning until we dropped at night since there was so much to see. Lots more pics coming!

    Honestly my mouth dropped open at the sight of these photos. Iceland has crept onto my bucket list but I will say I have not seen anything like these photos in my research. Fantastic!
