September 2, 2013 - Part 4

We headed to Caribou for two reasons:  1, to see what the northern part of eastern Maine was like, and 2, to hopefully catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.  You can imagine how the Northern Lights thing worked out.  Even on an ideal night it's hit or miss, and our weather was anything but ideal.  It was a plausible idea, though, because the Northern Lights have been seen in Caribou, and even in Presque Isle, to the south, and this year is the peak of an 11 year cycle for solar activity, which is what causes the Northern Lights.  However, it wasn't a total loss...we did get to see what northeastern Maine is like, and we got to stay in this cool snowmobiling cabin, which was really cheap since it's not snowmobile season.  :)

Jed was so excited to find bunkbeds in his bedroom!  He's never gotten to sleep in a top bunk before.
