Memories with Mom
A Girls Adventure in North Pole, Alaska
It was a girls trip! A girls adventure to Fairbanks, Alaska! Mom had a little work to do in the area so she decided to bring her girls along for some sightseeing and an adventure. What a great way to make some family memories than a trip to Fairbanks Alaska.
The Schirmer girls called us last minute at the end of the 2015-2016 season in mid April. We had stopped taking bookings and were winding down from a busy season when we got a call from Jackie who was trying to find something for her and her beautiful girls to do with the short time they had in the Fairbanks area.
As luck would have it, a look at the data from the satellites and the local weather report said we were in for a partly cloudy night with the likelihood of a huge Aurora storm. What luck!
Breakup was upon us, the snow was disappearing fast with the approach of spring and we had officially lost complete darkness. The Schirmer girls were excited and came over for a chat. They didn’t quite have the right layers to wear but fortunately our days of below freezing were behind us and their jeans and jackets were suffice.
The Chena River was to be the backdrop with its fading snow and the flowing water no longer frozen. We had hoped the Aurora would reflect upon its breast and it did not disappoint us. We saw brilliant dancing greens this night that made for an amazing scene with the sun still in the distance making its last salute for the night.
What memories will you make with your daughters, Mom? One that can be displayed as beautiful wall art for decades to come? One that will last long past your presence here?
