It was warmer when we woke up today and got ready for our train ride after a hearty breakfast. As we checked out of the hotel I saw one of the most random and, to me, irritating things ever. For some reason many people think they can photograph the northern lights with smart phones, which obviously does not work well. Plan B?

Dinner was at the hotel, of course, because there was nothing else around. We ate with a couple from Charlotte.
