Going south again...
It seems that we have a small chance to have a clear sky in the southern coast region close to Seljanlandsfoss. So we drive into the night and drive and drive...and a little second sleep by touching the road boundaries convinced us to take a break and found a place to sleep close to an winter sport area. 
At the next morning we go on driving and make our next stop at Skogafoss waterfall. It was terrible how many bus tourists were carried to the sightseeing points. Of course we are also tourists, but sometimes it shock´s what happened with all the nice places. 
Also the area with the air plane wreck Douglas DC3 at the coast, where 2 years before we can drive an off road direct to the air plane (only the GPS Datas were known) now it only can be reached by feet and you have to park the car close to the ring road on a signed parking place. I think it will help to get no further uncontrolled spectacle at the wreck. Some tourist have leave graffities at the airplane...unbelievable.
At the Skogafoss waterfall we make a walk above to the view point. The weather gets worst but we walk further trough the closed area the Laugavegur trekking route for a while. That was a good decision because the valley is very nice, also if it rains. But later on the rain stops and I also can start my drone to capture some nice shoots. In summer it is possible to walk this trekking route for 45 km.
What for us still is missing, is an flight over an glacier so we stop at the 8km long Solheimajökull, which is not the nicest one, but easy to reach. That it is easy to reach we recognize also when we see the lot of people which were dropped off out of the busses to make their glacier tour. Hopefully they learn a lot of the sensitivity and the importance of the conservation of the glaciers for the future.

Our camp ground for the night. A nice awaking as we see that it was n great winter-sport area. Behind the Skogafoss waterfall a nice valley with several small waterfalls, invite to go for a walk The Laugavegur trekking route should be in summer a very nice adventure Skogafoss Skogafoss Skogafoss Solheimajökull from above  Solheimajökull  Solheimajökull Solheimajökull Solheimajökull with the lot of glacier trekking tourists Solheimajökull
