Skógafoss & Skaftafell, Iceland: Day 6

  Svartifoss roading

Day 6 in Iceland began with a 4.5 hour drive to Skaftafell (with stops along the way of course - sights, candy, hot dogs). Skógafoss, another MASSIVE waterfall, was a must see. 
We got out of the car a lot along the way and at one extra desolate area got out IN THE MIDDLE road and took some pictures of us jumping for joy. Really expressing our true emotions of this trip. 
We made it to our camping grounds at Vatnajökull National Park (hello wifi and clean showers, I could camp all the time). Since we still had several hours left of full sunlight we hiked to Svartifoss, a beautiful basalt column waterfall. That hike was a great glute workout if you know what I mean. 
The ONLY restaurant open for dinner was connected to a gas station (in Iceland that usually means it's going to good food) and we had the most amazing lamb burgers with bechamel sauce.  
Full and tired, we Vern assembled our tent for the night. These new brands the kids have these days are fool-proof, I was surprised by how quickly it could be put together. 
I don't think either of us slept at all, between the whole never getting dark thing and a bird called a Snipe circling our tent all night. Y'all this bird. We wanted to kill it. We thought it was a drone/dragonfly/sheep (delirious at that point). This bird sounded like a SHEEP. Listen
Anyway we learned our lesson for the next night - ear plugs.
