Up North here there is this thing called the Aurora Borealis. I've heard of it, I suppose, but I never knew what it was. I figured it was some girl with a weird name. But last night we went out into the middle of nowhere to see the aurora.
We had a tour guide, which was a good thing because I was terrified of the wilderness. I've heard one too many stories of people being eaten by bears or disappearing into the forest and never coming back. This vacation is great and all but I'm looking forward to returning to the city.
So we went with a tour guide and a bus full of other people. We seemed to drive forever and ended up stopping somewhere where the glare of light pollution was negligible.
All the ribbons of light in the sky! It was very beautiful although I'm not sure they photographed very well.
Bill kept his arm around me the entire time. I'd like to think it was because he was being romantic but really it was so we both would feel warmer. Thank goodness for this hideous parka but I am still freezing.
Two more days here and then we're headed home.
