Still Going Strong

I was lucky to witness this incredible display of the northern lights from the Granite Tors Trail, about 40 miles outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. It was a miserable two days pulling camera and camping gear by sled on snowshoes up the hill. Wind crust snow was on top of 3 feet of powder and unconsolidated hoarfrost. Every other step I would punch through to my waist and have to crawl out of it. But, I had two incredible nights of aurora viewing, so it was totally worth it. In the photo above, you can see a bit of the city lights from Fairbanks and North Pole on the distant left. Check out the story below!
