A short 4.5 hour flight and we're in a near-arctic paradise. Arrived here at 6 AM Iceland time and the group is complete. Along for this adventure are Byron and Tina McNew, Barron Snyder, Daniela Merz, Catherine Singer, Mike Salomon, Bryan Treen, Ian Benham and yours truly. By 8AM we were on the road for the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and the town of Grundarfjordur. Weather upon arrival... rain mixed with snow changing to snow only by the time we reached our destination. This is a great group and the weather changing to partly sunny by day's end hopefully is an omen of another great trip. Sun up... 10:30AM. Sun down... 5:00PM. A short day, but we packed it in. More pictures to come!
