If only there were hundreds of kilometres of road southeast. 

While we did scale the Ingraham Trail at it's most southeastern dips trying to prolong our time under the clearest skies as long as possible, cloud ultimately won out. And for me personally, officially, we closed out aurora season with my last tour of the year on a relatively quiet, but always beautiful, note.

April has been easy. Well, maybe not easy - but technically perfect.

There hasn't been one night in April we haven't see the aurora in clear skies. That kind of perfect. And it hasn't always been easy, but last night was probably the first time I had to really sink back into maps and satellite imagery. And not that it gives us a whole lot this time of the year with the weather moving so fast, and a little bit unpredictably (think Icelandic weather), but we did very fortunately end up in the right place at the right time last night, after a short, repeated tour of part of the same part of Ingraham Trail.

Some nights photography does the aurora justice, and it would be easy to argue it does the aurora well beyond just justice. Last night was not one of those nights. The aurora was so much more beautiful, vast, varied, and fast moving than you can imagine.

One day, hopefully long from now, auroral activity will subside back to normal levels after this high speed wind stream finally leaves us, and these dancing clouds and curtains of pink will no longer be a nightly occurance. But until that time...
