Öxarárfoss and the Almannagjá gorge
Öxarárfoss is a waterfall in Þingvellir National Park in southern Iceland. According to a 12th-century saga, the river Öxará was moved in the 9th century to channel water into this rift to provide water for Alþingi, the Icelandic parliament. Part of the Almannagjá gorge, this rift marks the boundary between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. When we were here in 2018, there were at least 50 people crowded into the viewing area. This trip, there was no one.
