Tonight as we made or way out into the wilderness under a perfect clear sky, just as the first stars were becoming visible 2 moose ran out in front of our cars and back into the forest, what a start to our trip.
We hurried up the hill to our viewing spot and just as we arrived to the hill top the first signs of the northern lights became visible. We sat down and waited to watch what would happen and the display really took off. Against the still bright twilight the northern lights danced for us with real energy, green, yellow and red visible at the brightest moments. The northern lights stayed with us for the rest of the trip but never as bright again, but it was so good while it lasted.
