Iceland is truly a geologically rich land. The Jökulsa'rlo'n
(Icelandic for glacial river lagoon) holds great charm for visitors.
This lagoon is populated by icebergs that originate from the
Breiðamerkurjökull glacier, an arm of the massive
Vatnajökull Ice Cap, the largest ice cap in Europe. In 1935
increasing amounts of silt began to build the lagoon which then
grew quickly. Today, erosion continues to increase the area of the
lagoon. Breiðamerkurjökull was formed during the Little Ice Age (c
1300 -1850). When I saw the iceberg pictured above, I was amazed by the
colors that stood out like a diamond on a gray day. Standing there
looking at it for a while I began to feel a very strong connection with
