No one can go so I'm going by myself, by golly. I don't want to miss the equinox in our solar max! Anyway, leaving 9/20 for four or five days. Staying at the Springhill Suites (because of Marriott points) and renting a pick up truck. I have big plans for big aurora but I wanted to know if someone had an opinion about going further toward Yukon to get directly under them. I don't want the hazy green city aurora, I want the best (trying to photograph them). I heard that the Yukon area is more directly under the aurora oval. I was in Yellowknife in March and was floored. Floored. Also, going way out by myself and not knowing anything about wildlife, etc., I wonder if anyone could give me a heads up on anything that kills a tourist, like bears or crazy mountain people. Had I tried to go out alone in Yellowknife in March I would have died. September is manageable, right? Thanks.
