As we left Gullfoss we drove south towards the coast. After our first real excursion on a gravel road we crossed this river with the lupins growing on the bank. Lupins grow everywhere Iceland, in some areas they cover the hills in a lovely carpet of blue.
The water in this river was milky white which indicates its flowing from melt water from the surrounding glaciers.
The banks of this river were of shear rock, volcanic in form, as you walked on the surface you could feel the surface hard and protruding into your feet.
