NORTHERN LIGHTS?

ever since watching the movie balto as a kid, it's been a dream of mine to see the northern lights. and nicolaus and i heard that there was a chance that we would be able to see the northern lights from utah last weekend! so on friday night, we headed up to payson lakes and found a little camping spot with a perfect view of the northwestern sky. turns out, the northern lights were not visible from utah with the naked eye...but we did see a lot of pretty stars, fall colors, breathed in some fresh, mountain air and heard a whole bunch of elk calls in the night. so that was cool. and i can still live with the hope of a trip to alaska or norway to see the northern lights one day...

  2. No need to go so far north! I'm from Southern Alberta and we could see them there every once in a while. Good luck!

  3. Balto!! I've had the same dreams since watching that film. It is a fantasy of mine that I hope to make a reality one day. I hear Norway is beautiful for Northern Lights. Oh what a beautiful sight it would be

  5. We are currently living is Seward, Alaska. During the winter, the Northern Lights light up the sky in ways I can't even describe. We have a loft with your name on it if you ever want to come see them!

  6. We tried to see them, too, but didn't get a chance to go up in the mountains. It's fun that you got to have a wilderness night!
