I gave myself the challenge of photographing the Northern Lights. First, I had to go where I could see them. Taste of Alaska Lodge is set up nearly ideally for this. Rooms in the lodge have patio doors for exiting mid-night to check the sky, with chairs for comfort while viewing or waiting. It's easy to set up your camera & tripod in the warm comfort of your room and then take it outdoors when the lights appear. Included is a big breakfast, served a little later (9am) for sleeping in after the late-night light show.
