The Guardians of Skogafoss

How many troll faces do you see in the cliff faces?

According to legend, the first Viking settler in the area, Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried a treasure in a cave behind the Skogafoss waterfall. The legend continues that locals found the chest years later, but were only able to grasp the ring on the side of the chest before it disappeared again. The ring was allegedly given to the local church.
