redfishingboat Imagine a scene where a sudden glacial flood sends chunks of ice weighing up to 200 tons at the bridge you're on. That's what happened in 1996 to the Gigjukvisl steel bridge close to Skaftafell. The phenomenon is called jökulhlaup - literally "glacier run" Some of the remains were left to remind us of the power of Mother Nature. (Pictured for scale: a very tall @tom_green_not ) 10h

redfishingboat Got caught blowing my nose in public in #Reykjavik. A big no-no! 30 days in an Icelandic hoosegow! Not really, but if I was, I'd be joining a very small group. Iceland imprisons only 45 people per 100,000. The USA locks up 707 per 100k. There are less than 150 people in Icelandic prison. Hmm. #pdx2iceland2015 2d

redfishingboat I'm re-reading the Saga of Burnt Njál while I'm here in #Iceland. There is always a little thrill for me when I see the old names living in new places. #pdx2iceland2015 2d
