In Search of the Northern Lights


semi-overcast 30 °F

As a bucket list item, I have always wanted to go to Alaska in the winter. I have been in the summer a number of times, but in the winter we are hoping to see the Northern Lights. It will not be my first time as I have seen them both in upstate New York as a kid and in Norway.

We flew into Anchorage and settled in to the Embassy Suites waiting for the sun to rise at about 10:00am.
Our first stop was the Anchorage Aviation Museum out by the airport. It is a very interesting museum that documents the Japanese fighting in Alaska during World War II (the battle of Attu) as well as other aviation milestones in Alaska.


Following lunch at a very popular local watering hole and pizza parlor, we headed south along the Turnagain Arm to our next stop the Alyeska Ski Resort where we will stay for two nights.

Well there you go again, making me tired from all the traveling.
