In the South Island, driving parallel to the coast there are so many places where water falls through the splitting geology. Natural springs and glacier-melt perform their power, falling through canyons and over edges, along their everchanging course. Iceland is an Island that could be driven around in 2 days but that would be impossible to do because there's so much to do and see in this unspoilt, pristine natural terrain-scape. We covered only 55 miles and it took 11 hours of jumping out the car and hiking on trails to see a fraction of the dramatic land forms.
With mega amounts of tourists now flooding into Iceland to view the land here as it may have once existed in their polluted regions, I fear eventually we will bring our mishandling of the earth's natural resources to the warming, higher latitudes of the planet.
