#28 Glacier walking

I had never seen a glacier before traveling to Iceland. While in Iceland in October 2016, we had several viewings of glaciers as we traveled around the island nation. We stopped at the Skaftafell National Park where we took a guided tour of the Svinafellsjökull glacier.

Normally walking on ice would be slippery and difficult, but with crampons the task was easier. These attachments to our boots dug easily into the ice, making walking easy. Good thing for sure footing because there were dangerous crevasses within the glacier that we needed to avoid.
