Horses

I met this friendly horse in Þjórsárdalur, on the way to the replica Viking farmhouse, hydroelectric power station and Hjálparfoss waterfall:

He was still partly wearing his winter coat and looked shaggy and unkempt. This didn’t stop him from posing for the camera:

The rest of the heard didn’t even lift their heads when I approached:

In the background you can see Gaukshöfði, a small headland that once jutted out into the river. It can be climbed from a road on the mountain-side behind it. The view is supposed to be fabulous, but I didn’t climb it because I get vertigo when the landscape in front of me drops off into the vertical.

There will be more photos of Gaukshöfði tomorrow.
