Icelandic Geysers

7 09 2016

The first real stop, apart from the tomato farm, on the “Golden Circle Tour” was to see the “geysers“, amazing eruptions of hot springs in beautiful colors.

But first, the warnings.

The bigger geysers have names.

The biggest active geyser, Strokkur

How active Strokkur is.

And this happens every 10 minutes or so.

Here is the bigger or the biggest dormant geyser from which the name of the phenomenon came.

I’ve seen the Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park, which was already amazing, but this seems to be much bigger.
Didn’t realize Iceland was where the name “geyser” came from!

This was the first time for me to see anything like this and I didn’t know before getting there that Yellowstone had the same. A colleague told me after my return that Japan used to have geysers, too.

A photo of Old Faithful was in a social studies (?) textbook at ISSH.
