Re: Ash-Covered Icelandic Glacier

Wow, there are many more people here than first meets the eye! I do wonder how some of them got to where they are. It must be dangerous to cross the glacier.

I'm sure the guides have a set path to minimize the danger.  One would think the ash may occlude some crevasses or other dangerous sections.  I did not venture too much further since my wife and I had already hiked to an inland glacier the day before where there was no one.  That was easy to get to and one could just step onto the ice with no problem....quite unexpected.

There are ample opportunities to do glacier and ice tunnel ventures.  That's why I intend to return some day.

BTW the 55-200 was behaving in the above image.  It was taken the day before the trek to Glacier Lagoon.
