Kaldaklofskvísl

One of my favorite elements of hiking the Laugavegur Trail is the many beautiful streams and rivers that are crossed during the trek, a stark contrast to the Southern California backcountry that I'm most familiar with. Kaldaklofskvísl is one of those rivers. It's fed by the glacial meltwater from Kalda­klofs­fjöll and surrounding high areas. To hike into the Icelandic wilderness and witness the amazing beauty is a life-changing experience. Standing at the edge of Kaldaklofskvísl, hearing the rush of its cold, powerful water, and breathing the clean Icelandic air has a way of soothing the soul and putting one back in touch with our fascinating planet.
