Seeing the Northern Lights for yourself is a major bucket list item for many. I was blessed to be able to see them while in Alaska for the Iditarod in 2020. The weather can be tricky so there are never any guarantees to see them, and usually, you have to be outside very late at night/early in the morning. This image was captured about an hour's drive north of the city of Anchorage at around 1:45 - 2:00 am during the winter, and it was so worthwhile to get to see them! We had to be up and out for another adventure by 8 the next morning, so we couldn't stay much longer, but our guides told us that the lights put on an even better show around 4 that morning. Too bad we couldn't have stayed, but what was got was definitely very satisfying.
