“Staying in Thompson along our train ride from Winnipeg to Churchill, Manitoba, we had just gone to bed in our hotel when the phone rang and our guide said he saw the aurora borealis.

He asked us if we wanted to get up and take a car out of town to get a better view.

We felt like firemen going to a fire: boots, coats, long underwear – and cameras. We drove out of town for our first view of the northern lights.

Something we will never forget.”
