Since I captured this early this morning and will be traveling on Monday, I decided to do a rare weekend blog post.
With a lot of packing and shipping to do, I really didn’t need to be running around last night looking for Northern Lights – but I just couldn’t resist and headed out for a couple of hours a little after mid-night. You see it has been another slow winter for the Aurora Borealis, especially in Alaska for some reason – they have been getting some pretty good shows in Norway. So when I saw things were looking good on the computer, I had to go for it!
It takes a very good show to reach us down here in Seward and unfortunately this wasn’t one of them. By driving North, I was able to watch them on the Northern horizon, but didn’t have the time to go any further – I probably would have needed to go past Anchorage and Wasilla. So I made the best of it as I watched them on the shores of Trail Lake and listened to the ice cracking on the lake – actually the ice was really loud – that made it kind of eerie on such a dark, moonless night!
Ok, back to packing!
