Day 2 of Road Trip North and East

Day 2 began with waking up to snow covering the ground.  This made the drive interesting and mother nature once again thought that my driving ability need to be tested with snow, fog, rain, hail and slushy conditions.  It was interesting adventure as we headed to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.  We made it though and it…
