LA Mountaineers to present Iceland talk

-A A +A

The January meeting of the Los Alamos Mountaineers will feature a first-hand account of a six-day, 50-mile trek in Iceland by Mario Schillaci.
The public is invited to hear this presentation Wednesday at Fuller Lodge. The presentation will follow the business portion of the Mountaineers’ meeting, which begins at 7 p.m.
Schillaci was part of a group of five people on the trek, staying in mountain huts as they made their way from the southern coast up a steady climb along a fast-flowing river, over a pass that sits between two glaciers, and then through a beautiful wooded valley with unusual rock formations nearby. The trek passed through surreal volcanic scenery, required fording three rivers, and included the most popular walk in Iceland, called the Laugavegur.
Iceland, an island about the size of Kentucky, lies astride the geologically active Mid-Atlantic Ridge just a few miles south of the Arctic Circle. The land blossoms with volcanoes, geysers, fumaroles, hot springs and lava flows. The central highlands are ringed with snow-capped mountains and deep gorges. Iceland boasts the third largest ice cap on earth, the glacier Vatnajokull; from this and other Icelandic glaciers flow wild rivers with spectacular waterfalls.
