Scenes From Recent Trip On Ring Road In Iceland

A penguin stands alone on a small iceberg spotted by Los Alamos Daily Post photographer and videographer Nate Limback during his recent 8-day trip traveling the Ring Road in Iceland. Limback shares his photos of the wildlife, landscapes, waterfalls and icebergs he encountered along the 825 mile road. The Ring Road is the nickname of Route 1, Iceland’s main motorway.
