Gulfoss (Golden Falls) waterfall in Iceland
At the beginning of 20th century, some contractors wanted to use the energy produced by the waterfall to build a hydroelectric dam, which would have destructed Gullfoss as a consequence. In sign of opposition, Sigridir Tomassdotir, the daughter of Gullfoss’ owner, threatened to throw herself in the waterfall to protest. She got the heavy support of many Icelanders and the project was abandoned. So we can credit her for still having the occasion to go to Gullfoss nowadays and still getting amazed by its beauty.
