Posts from the ‘Night’ category

Jumping ahead to more recent travels, we just returned from Denali National Park in Alaska. It’s the end of the season for the “in-park” accommodations, and we had the opportunity to see not only spectacular fall colors, but significant snow as well! The most exciting opportunity, however, was the appearance of the Aurora Borealis on the second night there. It is something I had never seen before, but hope to many times again. In this image, notice the Big Dipper underneath the Aurora lights.

The hike up Clear Creek was challenging, mostly at the beginning where we had to scale both sides of a slippery rock about 30 ft. tall. As every day, the temperature would be climbing to about 105 degrees, so at the end of the hike, that tall black rock was burning hot. But the reward in between was the view above. A spectacular spring-fed waterfall!
