For as long as I can remember the Northern Lights have been on the top of my bucket list- maybe only second after Rome. Actually, they were one of the driving forces behind wanting to go to Alaska. The thing is, you can’t plan to see them, it’s all chance. So I was trying really hard to not get my hopes up.
Well, God was on our side because we saw them the only night we were there that wasn’t overcast. Man was it a sight for sore eyes! We stayed out on top of a mountain from 10:30pm-3am. It was a long night but it was a good one. While they weren’t as active as they are in all the National Geographic pictures they were still stunning.
