Hofsós Iceland

I know, I know….. another photo from Iceland.  I don’t know what to say, it’s just such an amazing location with wonderful landscapes, excellent people, wide-open geography, and lots and lots of sheep.  I took this picture when MJ and I were exploring Hofsos, which sits on Skagafjordur bay in the northern part of the country.  Hofsos is a small village of about 200 people with a natural harbor for their fishing industry.  Their main tourist attraction is The Icelandic Emigration Center, which is a museum dedicated to the westward migration to North America (mainly Minnesota) at the start of the 19th century.  We met a 10 year old boy who was working the front desk.  If you didn’t know any better, you would have guessed he was from Chicago based on his use and accent of the England language.    This little village has an amazing community pool as well, but that’s another story.
