Just wanted to share some pics from the latest summer trip to Arctic North...

If you truly want to get out and forget time and cell phones this is the place to go! The sun doesn't set at all between late May and mid August, local people don;t use traditional time at all, everything's by "the light of the day"... you can have a date just describing where the sun is in the sky :-) The kids are playing outside 4.00 a.m. when the parents are working at the yard... There is nothing to compare to light Scandinavian summer nights! There is magic in the air!

I am a Son of the South but the Northwoods and the far north have always called my name. Kufitar your photos are exellent there is wonder ever where on this earth if you look but the far North is a great place for wonder and solitude.
