Sunrise after neverending night
Alaska

During an all night hike this is the sunrise that greeted my cold, aching self. It had gotten colder than I thought it would and I decided to forego sleep and keep hiking to stay warm. That is one of the great advantages of being closer to the poles in summer - no darkness.
