Northern lights reflecting off of overflow on the Chena River
Aurora over the frozen Chena River

I took this photo along the Angel Rocks trail in the Chena River State Recreation Area. Here the aurora borealis is reflecting off of overflow on the Chena River. A friend and I snowshoed up the highpoint on the Angel Rocks to Chena Hot Springs trail in the dark to get better views. The clouds eventually overtook the sky, but we had nearly 4 hours of hiking under the northern lights.
