having finished Norway, here are photos from Iceland – all as I prepare for my trip to Yukon and Alaska. Do we detect a theme here? Arctic Circle or bust!
Iceland will be done in about seven batches, just like Norway – even though I spent only four days in Iceland. And of those four days, here are … none of them.
This set of photos is just the flight between Minneapolis and Keflavík – nothing here from the ground quite yet, but here’s some clouds and some northern lights too!
Clouds at sunset. Not long after having taken off from Minneapolis, so I am figuring somewhere over Ontario.

Let us behold day 6.
We head out to the outer islands of Langøya and Andøya, and then head back to the airport with remarkably little time to spare.
The shortest place name on Earth. Å. This is why I wasn’t too worried when I didn’t get a photo of the sign for Å i Lofoten – because here is Å i Andøya.
And here is the å for which the town is named. “å” is Norwegian for “small stream”.
A halo, somewhere over the island of Langøya.
The road to Hovden, just around sunset.

This view looks at a snowy scene on South Carolina’s Highway 11. The route runs along the top of the state near the borders with North Carolina and Georgia. It is perhaps best known as the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Highway, and offers great views of the surrounding hills and mountains. The author was in South Carolina this weekend, and notes that the state’s new route markers are only about 50% updated in the upstate (the area around the I-85 corridor).
