Geysir

Bubbling water at Geysir

Today we took a tour of the golden circle, which includes Þhingvellir, Gullfoss, and Geysir. Clare liked Geysir the best. I liked Gullfoss an awful lot, though I also enjoyed Geysir. I did like Geysir more than Old Faithful. The original Geysir doesn’t actually spurt anymore, due to a fairly recent earthquake. But as a result of that earthquake, a new geyser formed, caller Strokkur, which erupts about every 5-7 minutes, about 25 meters high. The particularly cool thing is how it forms a bubble right before erupting.
