13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A hiker appreciates the beauty of her own country.
Landmanmalaugar, Iceland is the most breathtaking place I have been to. We started the hike as it was rainstorming, but soon after the sky cleared up and the weather was beautiful. In the photo is a view of the mountains and a hot spring. An Icelandic hiker appreciates the scenery. Even though she lives in Iceland, she told me she hasn't had the opportunity to visit this area in a while. We all felt extremely lucky to soak up the natural beauty on such a glorious day!
