Northern Lights Viewing in Denali National Park
There are no guarantees that the Northern Lights will start dancing on the night you look skyward, but it is so worth taking the chance. One of the great rewards for hanging out in Alaska once the dark and cold settles over the state, the Northern Lights or, if you want to be scientific about it, Aurora Borealis, serves up a light show that is equal parts science, magic, and art. That Mother Nature sure does some crazy stuff. Your best bet for catching the light show is to head away from city lights. That's one of many reasons it's worth making the trip to Denali National Park. Open year-round, the park's summer crowds disappear, leaving visitors to feel as though the massive National Park is an intimate personal space. And on a clear night, the Aurora and the night stars will carry your imagination away--and leave you grasping for ways to explain the beauty.
