Photo of the week — “Aurora before the clouds”

It seems like every night the clouds roll in fast, no matter how nice of a day it may have been. I still managed to catch some brief glimpses of the aurora before the clouds filled the sky. We had some strong winds in the middle of the week that managed to knock much of that beautiful snow off of the tree branches – it would be nice if we had another snowfall!

The view from the ridge just south of Wickersham Dome. Rain can be seen falling in the valley over the winding Elliott Highway far below while the hillside is showing signs of green-up. Bright sunlight filters in through the dark clouds, illuminating some of the surrounding landscape.
