Inukshuks in Iceland
My husband and I traveled around the periphery of Iceland (on Ring Road) over a 9-day trip this summer. We loved every bit of it. This was shot on our day 1 in the country, as we approached Thingvellir (Þingvellir) National Park from Reykjavik, where a number of small inukshuks (inuksuit) basked in the beautiful evening light. In the background is the Thingvatn (lake). Thingvellir (Þingvellir) National Park is a part of what is called "Golden circle" , a very popular tourist route in South Iceland, just outside Reykjavik, and includes major sights like the national park, Gullfoss (one of Iceland's most famous waterfalls), and a couple of geysers (Geysir, Strokkur)
