This was the place at the heart of the famed “Klondike” gold rush in 1896, and is still filled with remnants from that rich history. Along the ‘Top of the World Highway’, 200 miles along a mountaintop from Dawson City, Yukon to Tok, Alaska, the artifacts are as plentiful as the amazing auroras. I also spent some time bushwhacking through Tombstone Territorial, and another trip back there is high on my list.
Iceland is a diverse and ever changing landscape of volcanic activity. Five geothermal plants generate a vast majority of the country’s heating and power need. The land is also rancid with volcanic features, such as fumaroles, hot springs, and the original geyser, Geysir. The red skies in some of the images below comes from the eruption of the Bárðarbunga volcano high up on the Vatnajökull, Iceland’s largest glacier.
Hope this post isn’t too green for you, I got incredibly lucky had many night of amazing light shows. Never realized how fast they move, and it was the thrill of a lifetime to finally get to see this wonder snake its way across the sky. I shot a bunch of time-lapse stuff too, and will have some great videos to accompany this soon.
