"After a 9 hour drive from Vancouver, we started cresting the mountain pass into Banff National Park as we noticed a bright cloud in the sky.

After a little while I pulled over, turned the lights off and noticed the color in the cloud. It was not in fact a cloud... it was the Aurora Borealis!

We rushed to this spot and setup so we could watch the lights all night!"

Todos Santos

The reward for ultra-light packing means on-demand immaculate skies, like seen here at Todos Santos in Baja California.
