The Glacier Lagoon

The Glacier Lagoon.
 
One exciting and educational thing we did was not done at one time, but instead over a course of several days. Putting the events in order is what makes it the most interesting when you think about it. On our hike over the Glacier we got to see where the glacier “calves” the chunks of ice that float toward the ocean through a lagoon. We visited the lagoon and watched how it would change minute to minute as the ice headed under a bridge and out to the ocean. We then went to Diamond Beach where the incoming tide would deposit the ice on the beach while it melted and broke apart as it was churned in the surf. The large chunks in the image today was completely different the next day when we visited. They had been separated, fractured and moved closer to the inlet. Visiting Iceland is more than just seeing a beautiful landscape, it is experiencing a landscape in transition and formation. Combine this scene of the glaciers with other areas that we saw where large flows of lava transitioned from volcanoes to the sea and you see an island formed by fire and ice.
