Aurora and Sled Dog, Kirkenes, Norway

This was an incredibly lucky, once-in-a lifetime experience for my wife Cindi and I. We planned a trip to Norway in the hopes of catching the Northern Lights. The unlikely combination of clear skies and a solar eruption allowed the gods to smile upon us. Making the experience even more surreal was the 5 hour evening trip by dogsled and an overnight stay at the Snow Hotel near Kirkenes.
