Seeing the Northern Lights – or the Aurora Borealis – is a bucket list item for many people. I’ve seen the lights in three provinces, including from my own backyard. these lights were from two years ago in Whitecourt. They weren’t the brightest, and the clouds slowly moved in to obstruct them, but they were stunning. : : : #alberta #travelalberta #northernlights #auroraborealis #canada #explorecanada #travel

I had some bad news in the family in late August. While everything is okay now, it meant that our family trip to Vermont was cancelled. I was bummed, but hey, that’s life. However, it opens up an opportunity for Christmas. No plans are final, but I’ll update as soon as it is.
