The Aurora Borealis (aka Northern Lights) glow on the horizon in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.
I normally wouldn’t post this late at night, but I’m too excited about this one. When I was a kid there was a big solar storm and supposedly we could see the Aurora Borealis all the way down in New Orleans, Louisiana. I didn’t see the bright lights that you see in the photos so I was a little disappointed and shrugged it off, not actually taking a close look. Then I had another chance during the summer of 2004 in British Columbia, but had the same feelings then as I did when I was a kid since it was only my second time to see them. Shortly thereafter I realized how silly I was being and regretted not at least trying to get a shot of them in British Columbia.
Fireworks explode over Snow King for the 4th of July in Jackson, Wyoming.
Tonight I headed roughly 2/3 of the way up Snow King in Jackson, Wyoming to get an up close show of the fireworks being shot off at the base. Needless to say, there were a few in there that shook the ground so hard I wondered if the shots would come out clear. Definitely one of the more memorable fireworks shows I’ve seen.
