Afternoon August showers and evening rainbows are one of my favourite Yellowknife things. Even if the downpour is just hours after thoroughly washing my car making her filthy again on the wet highways overnight. But there are worse things happening in the world right now.
Coming off months of bright nights and weeks of overnight twilight skies into a new moon phase, something about the Milky Way seemed especially beautiful tonight. It’s easy to forget how special views like this are after a summer eating veggie dogs at IKEA and reading on the grass in the sunshine for weeks at a time. The north is a special place.
