O.K! O.K! I know you're wondering just what is "IT". This is the one thing that we really looked forward to seeing from our first thoughts of coming to Alaska.
No, it wasn't a polar bear. (Though I would be interested in seeing one if the chance to do so arises.)
Enough stalling......................we finally got to see the Northern Lights!
We were in Fox, AK which is north of Fairbanks. We were staying in a little campground that was in a small valley and we were surrounded with mountain ridges on all sides. About 1 a.m., DannyLee went outside to take Ariela for her final walk of the day. It wasn't long before he came back and told me to come outside too. I had an inkling that I was in for a treat and I wasn't disappointed.
The sky was full of dancing green and blue rays to the north and there were these ribbon-like clouds all around our location. The clouds to the south and east were white and it seems we might have missed the best of the show already, but for our first time, we were delighted and stood outside in simple wonder. It was funny for us that we had just seen our first Alaskan rainbow the day before while in Fairbanks.
It felt like YHVH Elohim was giving us a solid reminder that HE alone keeps HIS promises!
