Summer days

Filed under: the joy of life — iamza @ 1:39 pm

One of the best things about moving further away from the equator is discovering just how long days can last during the summer. During a visit to Faro in the Yukon a few years back, we were still trying to outrun our shadows at half past ten at night. By half past eleven, the sky overhead was dark enough that we could finally make out the wispy green trails of the Aurora Borealis, but the black mountains on the western horizon were capped by a surprisingly bright sky. 

The downside, of course, is that, come winter, the days seem impossibly short and gloomy.
