The northern lights soar over Mt Drum and the Wrangell mountains.

A great night a couple nights back with the northern lights. Shooting from near Glennallen, the lights were awesome. The view across the Copper River Basin toward those amazing Wrangell Mountains got even better as the lights lit up the sky.

The mountains here are Mt. Sanford (partially obscured by) and Mt Drum. Mount Sanford is the larger of the peaks, at 16,237′ and Mt Drum perhaps the best known of the Wrangell Mountains, is just over 12 000′ at 12,011′.

I’ve shot the Wrangell Mountains many times and the northern lights a few, but rarely have I had the good fortune to put the 2 together. Good times.

Cheers
Carl
