Mountains and Aurora

The Aurora. It's hard to describe to anyone. Imagine neon-green, yellow, red streaks flowing through the sky. It's 3-D and dynamic: like flowing, winding, flickering fingers.

Some vivid memories: standing in a snowbank on top of Cathedral, drinking blueberry-flavored Smirnoff ,watching the lights. Aurora pics courtesy of Kyle (my camera was no match for his)

Below are some highlights that I captured with my $50 nikon:
