Seeing the Northern Lights was a bucket list adventure I shared with my son, Joe. He called me early in 2013 to tell me he was closely watching the weather and optimal opportunities to catch the lights. "You need to be ready at a moment's notice, because when the weather is perfect, we're outta here!"
Sure enough, and true to his word, he called in early March and said we had a 4 or 5 day window of great weather and the chances of catching the Northern Lights was at its peak. Within 48 hours we were both on planes meeting up in Seattle and then on to Anchorage. This was my first time to Alaska and I can't imagine a more beautiful time of year. The two of us had a fabulous time together and an adventure of a lifetime. Joe created this amazing video of the images I took along with a very moving soundtrack...Thank you Joe!! I love you for this!!!
