The feeling of going solo is something I so cherish. I had a huge grin and could almost cry. I felt so blessed to be there, in Iceland, witnessing this most amazing waterfall. I’m glad Kai turned back because after she did, the hike got pretty iffy. The trail was packed in ice and that plus the mud made some difficult stepping. But the view of Svartifoss (‘the black waterfall’) completely stole my breath. I remained there for some time.
