Pride of Isafjordur

We had an opportunity to visit the forest in Isafjordur. This was no small project. If you are interested in reforestation in Iceland, please click here.

 
We all drank from the clear waters of the stream cascading down the mountain.

 
A closer view of the Forest.

 
This is the winter ski complex. I understand they have to move it from time to time, due to avalanche activity.

All of this vegetation is very exciting in Iceland.

I would like to try to live there, at least for a month. Not sure it is my type of life, but breathing clear air would be happiness, I am sure..
