Gulfoss and Geysir

The two must-see attractions in Iceland in the 70's were Gulfoss and Geysir.  Today, Gulfoss is still there in all its vastness, but Geysir does not erupt with enough regularity to attract impatient tourists, and Strokkur has taken over the top spot to see. Notice on the Gulfoss you see any guardrails?  No, you don't!  We simply found the unpaved road with the basic sign that said "Gulfoss" and drove up to a parking area and walked to the edge of the falls.

Now, courtesy of searching the internet, I found current photos and there is both a railing and a wooden observation deck.  Spoil sports!!!
