Way cool, Katy! Somehow this seems so much closer than the ones I try to chase around here on the coast of Maine. Almost like being inside a rainbow! Kudos to you, and congratulations on the Blue Border!

Great shot Katy, as a former Alaskan of 37yrs I believe only a true Alaskan would classify -51 F as "chilly"!!
