A Step Above Hopelessness, and Not Rushing Beauty

The rain we hit on the drive out of Yellowknife tonight was spectacular, if you love storms. If you’ve travelled to Yellowknife specifically for the aurora, which means needing at least some clear skies, it was probably less so. I kept my excitement over the rain inside.

But coming out on the other side gave a sight for sore eyes - clear sky further to the horizon. As always though, clear skies are only half the battle. We waited as long as we could before the clouds ate up every last star, and then the clear sky chase was back on. So we again arrived to another break of clear sky, and this time luckily enough for us, they, and we, stayed long enough for a beautiful show.
