Darkness Arrived and Chaos That Follows

We left town early. It was a kind of intuition thing, but also an enjoyment thing to be away from the dozens of buses rushing out of town at the same time and then jostling for spots along the Ingraham Trail during a night of clear sky. We took a slow drive out opposite the bright twilight sky and found ourselves a little lakeside area. Before the sky was anywhere near dark, the aurora was already there waiting. She danced through the lingering twilight and into full darkness. It seemed just yesterday our sky was still twilight all through the night, but things change quickly and this is the plunge into winter.
