More aurora near Carmacks in the central Yukon
Not a very intense display but interesting one the less. The first GIF is the aurora over Tantalus Butte, just by the old coal mine site
This GIF is down by the boat launch across from Tantalus Butte. The river is starting to freeze over now.
The hike to Coal Mine Lake. A short walk along the river takes one past some old coal workings on the south side of the river and on to Coal Mine Lake Rec Site. Snowy day, lake was just freezing over. Some self evident graffiti in the shelter
you can get to the trailhead for the lake via the parking area on the right just before the bridge or you can access it from a path that leads under the bridge from the village side. Consequently here are some shots of the bridge. Reportedly the old mine site is private property and is subject to some sort of development.
