Next image: Seljalandsfoss is a popular waterfall in Iceland. It’s not far from Skogafoss and can be seen from the ring road. So it’s usually loaded with visitors. This day was no different but a big wind and rain storm was on the way. Wind speeds were 40-50+mph and rain. Which meant that the snow turned into a sheet of ice! We were prepared with crampons, or “ice spikes” to navigate the ice. But many visitors were not. There is a path that one can walk around the falls and it’s fun to do in the summer time and during the winter there are visitors that often slide into the pool under the falls due to the icy path. It’s really slippery with out ice spikes. Anyway I walked behind the falls and found a couple that had made there way behind the falls with out proper footwear. There was literally no way they could get down without sliding down the path somehow. The woman was terrified. And the guy really had no idea what to do other than find his own way down. So a buddy and I walked up to the lady and asked if we could help her down. She said yes, so I grabbed one arm and my buddy grabbed the other and we slowly walked her down the icy path to catch up to her boyfriend. She said thanks and we went on to take more pictures. Grateful for our ice spikes on our boots. And not one word from the boyfriend!
