Journey to the Last Frontier
A Journey into the land of the Midnight Sun at winter time to chase the Aurora borealis. Along the way,, we wondered at the captivating allure of the snowy vistas of glaciers , took soothing hot springs baths and ultimately were awe struck by the spectacular Northern Lights !!!
Misty morning with the late sunrise starts the day
Home away from home , Fairbanks, AK
We behold Nature's beauty and we are humbled...
Mendenhall Glacier, Juneau Icefields
Chena Hot Springs, Fairbanks
Extremely frigid weather in Fairbanks( -47 deg Celsius) was countered by milder temperatures with the thawing of the snow in Juneau..... Practically deserted at off peak non-cruise season! Juneau was ours alone !!!
And we chased you and we caught you, Aurora ....
An aurora, sometimes referred to as a polar light or northern light, is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions.
Upon Seeing the Aurora Borealis A fantastic sight Glowed into the cloudless starlit night Shimmering magenta, purple or A sea of emerald green Pure delight is felt when seen Shivering though from frost biting cold I stood and watched Just ooh'd and aah'd In awe I felt my heart explode For the joyful grandeur Of the aurora borealis Is such to behold !!!

And the next journey is about to start...
But it is already in my mind... #brainpoetryLLL
