Iceland – Snæfellsnes

Pronounced: stnai-fɛls-nɛːs We stayed in Stykkishólmur (Aka Stykkish) on the Snaefellsnes peninsula. Snaefellsnes is located directly North of Reykjavik, but its not exactly a straight shot to get there. Stykkishólmur is located on an even smaller peninsula on the North side of Snaefellsnes. They have a small harbor with fresh fish arriving daily. At the …

Iceland – Into the volcano

The day after we arrived back in Reykjavik from the South Coast, we took a much shorter day-tour inside of a "dormant" volcano. It's only about 30-45 minutes depending on "traffic" outside of Reykjavik. You can see the city from the top of the volcanic area. Reykjavik from the volcano Thríhnúkagígur Volcano I believe our …

Exploring – Green Ridge State Forest by truck

It appears that winter is already over. In fact it seems like it's been over for a month. It's been unseasonably warm with temperatures in the 70s on multiple days in Maryland. I suppose I didn't take my own advice all that much this winter to go outside in the cold, but we wrapped up …
