Walking In Cold Air Helps Me Sleep

No surprise; it burns a lot of calories to warm up near-freezing air.

We drove to Elk Island National Park east of Edmonton last night, seeking clear skies and aurorae.  The park is in a dark sky preserve.  But there were only occasional blue sky patches, and it wasn't very dark until about 9:00 PM.  It appears a clear patch is headed this direction from the west today, and we are headed west tonight to a spot that promises to be very dark according to this map.

Elk Island was still a nice visit; we saw beaver lodges and Wood Bison, and heard wolves howling in the distance.
