Iceland trip - day 3
Hellisheiðarvirkjun Geothermal energy production facility
Gullfoss (Gold Falls) to see the falls and have some hot meat (lamb) soup
Geysir (Geyser, obviously) national park to watch Strokkur erupt, and see the other geysirs
Thingvellir national park (site of the Allthing, the Icelandic parliament, between the ninth to eighteenth centuries), including Thingvallavatn (the Allthing lake) and a hike up to Lögberg (Law Rock, where the law-speaker who was head of the allthing would speak 1/3 of all the rules and laws of the land for each allthing- law-speakers had three year terms, and over the course of each three-year cycle all the laws would be addressed) at sunset.
Lastly, recuperation back in Reykjavik for some Maryland cookies and to warm up...
