Iceland (7) – Gulfoss

Gullfoss (Golden Falls) is a waterfall located in the canyon of the Hvita river.  Part of the Golden Circle loop that includes the Geysir (my previous post).

The origin of this beautiful waterfall starts 40 KM north at Langjokull glacier in Lake Hvitavatan

Some brownish parts of the water is the sediments that the glacial ice has carved off the earth

The water plunges into a 32M deep crevice which 2.5 KM in length

Flowing into the crevice
