Took to the creek tonight in search of northern lights. I was pushing my luck, the moon is waning 85% illuminated and washed the stars. It was -7° but felt chillier with the moisture. The cold always takes some getting used to. Once behind Swansea the clouds rolled in. Ara choose to stay in the truck while I walked around on the frozen road. Once I’d seen enough, we rode back down into the valley, stopping by the lake to enjoy a coffee. It won’t be long and Lake Windermere will be covered in ice. To think, just a few days ago, I was considering taking one last dip.
