Traveling in the 

West Highlands of Iceland
Icelandic Music to set the Scene
Traditional Iceland Songs played by the Arctic String Quartet
"Celebration of Icelandic Songs"
This light classical music CD includes my friend Kate Harrison playing the viola. Listen to the music HERE, where you can get it as digital music or a CD. The first song is pure traditional Icelandic horse riding music, perfect for driving through the highlands.

With Ólafur "Óli" Ólafsson and 
Jakobína "Bína" Vilhelmsdóttir as the guides.
Past Eriksjökull Glacier to the Langjökull Glacier, 
seen here, the second largest glacier in Iceland.
Óli, Bína, Ruth, and Bruce enjoy lunch 
in the warm low sun.
