In October 2016, I was invited to keynote a corporate retreat at Alyeska Resort in Girdwood, Alaska, just outside of Anchorage, and I flew out for approximately 36 hours.  This was my second trip to Alaska:  the first was almost 30 years earlier, when I was flown out for a similar length of time for a job interview -- only that time, it was in late December, and I never actually saw the state in daylight.  (Also, I didn't get the job.)  This trip, however, the sun was in its glory, and I had an hour or two to go exploring.  A highlight:  on the flight on the way back, I was able to photograph the aurora borealis.

Below are some of my favourite photographs from this whirlwind trip.  (And click here to read about my adventure in trying to hunt down those elusive northern lights.)
