Not as impressive as what we saw in Iceland, but it was a good start to our trip. Strong wind was whipping the snow around, limiting visibility near the top. Looking down on the lake from a vantage point just below the glacier. The snow drifts were too deep and the pitch too steep for a couple of unprepared amateurs to get any further up.
