We got lucky

The Northern light aren't always a sure thing, but we got lucky on October 9. Our guide, Ricky, was informative, on time and friendly. We saw a good, but not fantastic display there and even more lively lights on the way back down. It's what we came to Fairbanks for, and we were not disappointed.

It was exciting to go visit another location for the northern lights however we didnt get lucky because there were clouds all over the place. That really wasn't as disappointing as much as how much we had to hear the tour guide talk about their hunting stories for almost 5 hours of waiting for those lights. I feel we could've gone searching other spots for them, however we just stayed in one spot. She was a nice tour guide but I could've used a more adventurous one.
