Our alumni group recently returned from a fascinating trip to Iceland. While I would surmise that there’s plenty of water in “Ice”land, at least during the summertime melt, I just never pictured such a stunning array of waterfalls. Our UW lecturer, Terje Leiren, shared a few photos with me and I just had to share them with you.
Professor Leiren also shared with us a very poignant moment that took place. The group discovered that a group member’s grandparents were from Iceland and with a five minute deviation to the tour, she was able to stop and walk upon the family farm. While the actual farmhouse was no longer standing, on the hillside next to a growing rhubarb patch, she discovered the old foundation…what a heartwarming addition to the tour.
