These ponies are as well acquainted with the bridle paths upon the cliff's, and the winding way among the mount-tins, *s the best of guides, ana all one has to do is to cling to the animal's back and hold ori to his irane to be perfectly safe, while ascending the most giddy bights. There are ao roads In Iceland; only bridle paths The valleys are green with ijraas, while the hills are white with snow and Ice. Wster falls In the alleys abound, presenting a very majestic picture Indeed .Many of the ruins of their ancient tetuples yet remain.
