We took a break at an information center to watch a film about the eruption in spring 2010 of a local volcano here. The ash fell across Europe for weeks, shutting down flights. The film documented the experience of a local farmer and his family, who applied ingenuity and an intrepid spirit to deal with the ash, flooding and debris from the eruption. Their resourcefulness was inspiring.
We decided to spend the night next to Skogafoss Waterfall, a deserving tourist attraction. Check out the pics!
Sho and I speculated that the homeowners planted the grove of trees to protect them from debris, mudslides and falling tourists:
