Winter Life in the Arctic

End of September we had our first snowfall. More than 70% of my fellow coworkers left for warmer grounds. Coldfoot was left with a crew of nine.

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.
