The biggest surprise I got when traveling in Iceland was how the landscape changed from day to day. Sometimes it looked like we were on another planet. I kept telling Mark that if they had filmed Star Trek: The Original Series here, the stories would have been more believable as taking place on alien worlds. So for this blog entry, I’m just putting up pictures with some information about where the photos were taken.
