It took 4 years of planning and as many failed trips to Denali National Park and Preserve to make this image a reality. Despite temps that dipped down colder than -40ºF causing the frost to win the battle with our car’s defrost for the windshield, the conditions were nearly perfect! The wind was nonexistent (rare for this location). The moon was nearly full and coming from the southwest and after waiting hours, the lights danced magically for about 10 minutes before fading again for the night.
