We've been dreaming of shots like this for 3 years. There is a very small stretch along the infamous "Ice Road" where the trees get covered in a thick frost as the humid air blowing up from the Yukon river in the valley below sticks to them to create a magical winter wonderland. During our second to last trip for the season, in what can only be called blizzard conditions otherwise, we got a 40 minute window of mostly clear skies in the wee hours of St. Paddy's morn. This was the beginning of what would turn out to be one of the best weeks of Aurora Chasing this entire solar cycle.
