"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.

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

Jason and his wife had to do some long distance hiking in cold windy conditions to get to this lunar-esque landscape on the Laugavegur Trail.
