Iceland Glymur Falls by Atlanta Photographer Maryann Davidson Photography

This afternoon, headed North with a few friends. We drove for several hours, passing Whale-Fjord and a few herd of sheep, on our way for a hike to Glymur Falls – the highest waterfall of Iceland (which cascades about 645 feet). Approaching the parking area, TLC’s song  “Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls” came on the radio. After having a laugh, we quickly decided which trail to hike. It was an easy choice – It definitely would not be Leggjabrjótur trail, which I believe translates as “Leg Breaker”! We opted for the easiest hike, though it wasn’t for the faint of heart. It started out with a leisurely stroll through a field of Lupins. The beginning of the trail was easy – passing over a cliff, descending through a cave, and crossing a small wooden pole over the river. After crossing the river, this is where the trail gets tricky – with slippery mud, loose rocks, and steep drop-offs. The view from the top is spectacular, (the falls and birds) making it worth every slip-and-slide back off the mountain. Before returning to the parking lot, we each took a minute to add a rock to a cairn formation. Total hike was only about 6 miles round-trip.
