Skógafoss

by Joseph McKeown


The Skógafoss, on the Skógá River in the south of Iceland, is one of the largest waterfalls in the country with a width of 82 feet and a drop of 200 ft. Due to the vast amount of spray the waterfall produces, a rainbow is often visible on sunny days. And we all know what rainbows signify. That's right, buried treasure. According to legend, the first Viking settler in the area, Þrasi Þórólfsson, hid treasure behind the waterfall. Enticed by this legend, Protima went into the waterfall to find the treasure. This was the last video Protima recorded before she braved the water and pursued the gold and valuables. Farewell, Protima!
