Adventure in Iceland with Smithsonian Journeys - Part 2
Our Smithsonian Journey's Adventure in Iceland continued with a visit to the small fishing village of Husvik.
Eyjafjallajökull (pronounced EH-ya-fedth-YO-kuhl). It is best to just look at the link provided about to remind yourself about this eruption that disrupted air travel for six days in Europe. If you would like to learn more about the family run farm that has this exhibit, click here.

Sólheimajökull glacier is called Europe's incredibly shrinking glacier as it has retreated one full kilometer up the valley in only nine years. See below.

Sólheimajökull glacier in 2015. My photo of the glacier two photos above was taken from along the far wall next to the lagoon.
My next postings will be soon and I will be reporting from the Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of America held in Denver. Thanks for reading.
