Iceland's Glymur Waterfall

At 196m, Glymur has long held the title of Iceland's tallest waterfall. The hike up to this waterfall proved to be more thrilling than I ever expected. Having to traverse a mysterious cave, cross a raging river on unsteady stones and a slippery log, and trudge up a steep, muddy hillside made this view extraordinarily rewarding. Visual aspects of the scenery such as its deep emerald moss and aqua-tinted waters complimented the natural soundtrack of roaring falls and majestic bird calls. It seemed to be the closest one could get to Tolkien dreamland.
