We stayed out about an hour but then gave up. Gordon got us up a little later because he thought the display might be "charging" up but it stayed the same. We did take advantage of the warming hut (yurt) but were disappointed when the stove was not even warm. But inside we were out of the wind which was pretty cutting when it blew by! Gordon was not exactly jubilant with what we saw that 2 nd night, but it was clear that he was very much relieved. At least, he could remind us that we had actually seen the aurora borealis even if it was just "basic." Must be hard on a group leader if the clients never see any aurora display at all. CHENA HOTSPRINGS RESORT SECOND STOP: We were picked up by our van the next day for the drive to our home base for the next three nights—The Chena Hot Springs Lodge about another hour further northeast.
