Spectacular Dantes View

It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful.

Waiting for Aurora Borealis Display

I'm staying up late hoping to see some Aurora Borealis display. It was forecast that there will be a good display tonight due to coronal holes. I don't know how good the display from downtown Fairbanks though since there's a lot of lights around. I wish I'm up somewhere away from the city lights and I wish I have a better camera to use so I can take some good pictures.
The best Aurora Borealis display I've ever seen was the one in Valdez, Alaska in 2001. It was very colorful almost looks like blood in the sky. I felt bad and sad that I didn't get to take pictures of it. Anyway, here are some Aurora Borealis pictures from Wikipedia.
