Vatnajökull; the largest ice field in Europe covering an area of 8,400 square km with an average ice thickness of more than 3,000 feet. If it melted, half the world would have pretty wet feet (according to some dude I met). Anyway, it’s big, really big. Pretty awesome to drive 200 kms around the south coast and see non stop glaciers spilling off the ice cap. I figure these United States Navy DC3 pilots were distracted by the view when they ran out of fuel in 1973 and crashed on the beach at Sólheimasandur. Bummer.
