Aurora Borealis – Alaska

We went to Creamer’s Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge and got to watch a man fly two birds.  There was a red-tailed hawk and a gyrfalcon.  We hiked a bit afterwards and saw lots of other birds roaming around a field.

On August 31st, we drove with our RV back to Deadman Lake in Northway, Alaska.  On the way, we stopped at the Santa Claus House in North Pole, Alaska.  How fitting!  It was basically a Christmas store, with presents, rocks, someone dressed as Santa, and a mailbox that would stamp your mail specially being from the place before sending it out.

At Deadman Lake, I canoed with my brothers.  Near the edge of the lake, there were a lot of plants, and in the middle, there was a duck that we followed around.

At night, Mommy and Daddy woke us kids up to see the northern lights for the first time.  It was very interesting.  Faint green ribbons of light traveled across the sky.  There weren’t many other colors besides green, because we weren’t north enough.  The ribbons would light up and fade in different areas of the sky, as well as grow, shrink, and wave.  I didn’t see too much of it because I was sleepy and decided to go back to bed.

In the morning, we moved to a spot near Destruction Bay in British Columbia, Canada.  I noticed that, as we moved, the tress were turning from green to gold.  It looked like fall, and it was cooler here.
