Bettles: Day 3

A travel blog entry by journeyguy


March 5th Bettles: Midnight It is cold and clear so the aurora trek to the viewing hut on the lake is on. Temperature is around -3 F so dressing warmly is important. Standing around taking pictures does not generate much heat. The lake hut is a couple of miles away from the lodge so light pollution is nearly nil. The hut is nice in that you can be inside with hot drinks and snacks and pop out when the aurora shows up. We had been ...

Bettles: Day 2

A travel blog entry by journeyguy


March 5th Bettles AK Crashed around 8 PM with alarm set for 11:30 PM. Sky survey at that time showed no stars and light snow. I hung around at the main lodge with some other members of the nightwatch for an hour but it soon became clear that there was going to be no aurora viewing this night. Back to bed. Morning: Big waffle with cream and blueberry sauce plus several cups of coffee to jumpstart the sleep deprived adventurers. Spent a goodly chunk of the morning ...

Wakeup call

A travel blog entry by journeyguy


1:30 AM and the phone rings. "This is your aurora wakeup call".

Finally put on big stompy insulated snow boots -- only later did I find out I had the left one on the right foot and vice versa. Clad for arctic combat, we stumbled out to the terrace to find our friends from Napa (met on shuttle to hotel) already watching ...

Arctic Circle Tour - Bev & Nay

A travel blog entry by fifthnote

Nay and I flew on a "Piper" (very small plane) from the Fairbanks airport, over the mountains to the Coldfoot, AK airport 60 miles above the Arctic Circle. Wow, what a very cool trip. We saw the Alaska pipeline and several pump stations along the way, from about 9,300 feet and through the clouds. We saw a native village and acres and acres and acres of wilderness. And yes, that native village was smack in the middle. They call ...

Day 113 - Come Fly with Me to the Arctic Circle

A travel blog entry by 10sandy


Day 113 - 8/20/13 Today was the much anticipated flight to the Arctic Circle and a little town called Bettles to explore that area and have lunch at the historic Bettles Lodge. Well, we woke up to heavy rain and I wasn't thrilled with that. Nick was not going. So off to the airfield we went prepared for the worst, and hoping for the best. After all, so far we have been very lucky to have the rain that we have had not matter all that much, but today ...
