Western Iceland, 1996
Why Iceland?  I heard that question more times than I could count before my first trip 
to Iceland in July of 1996.  Well, plain enough, I didn't know anyone that had been here, 
I had at least a passing interest in viking stuff, and I was always interested in the far 
north (even if Iceland isn't really in the arctic).  It also was a good time for an adventure. 
I'd been a good little worker boy for too long.  And I'd been thinking about all those 
lengthy climbing trips I'd made back when I was fumbling my way through college. 
Anyways, I did it by bicycle and I had a great time.  Have a look....
