America's Great Outdoors
The University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute estimates the auroras are visible 243 nights a year from the Fairbanks area. Many photographers escape Fairbank’s ambient lights by traveling the Elliott or Steese Highways to capture the auroras. A popular destination is the Wickersham Dome Trailhead parking lot at mile 28 and nearby pullouts on the Elliott Highway. Those trails lead into the Bureau of Land Management-managed one-million-acre White Mountains National Recreation Area and its winter trails. Here’s a photo taken near the Wickersham Dome Trailhead.Photo: Karen Laubenstein, BLM-Alaska
