We got lucky

The Northern light aren't always a sure thing, but we got lucky on October 9. Our guide, Ricky, was informative, on time and friendly. We saw a good, but not fantastic display there and even more lively lights on the way back down. It's what we came to Fairbanks for, and we were not disappointed.
