Coldfoot

After spending the day in the bus, driving up the Dalton and eating some really good rhubarb pie that we got at Yukon Station, we spent the night at Coldfoot. Coldfoot is small and probably just chock full of cold feet most of th year.

We set an alarm and got up at 2:00 AM. hoping for Northern Lights. We got dressed, went outside and stood around in the freezing dark for about fifteen minutes. We were both about ready to give up and go back to our warm beds, wimps that we are, when we started seeing bands of light forming in the sky. These came and went for about another fifteen or twenty minutes, and we feel very lucky to have seen them. Very beautiful!
