Oooh fun! I see there are no Canadian mountains listed there *pout* 

 

Come visit me in winter for Northern lights! ;)

 

Damn I actually totally forgot to put Mont Albert on my list (almost the "real" end to the AT, which if I'm doing Katahdin I feel I should definitly do this one too).  Thanks for the reminder :D

 

Oh wow, can you actually see the lights from up there?

Yup!  When I used to live in a small town just north of where I am now I used to be able to see them from my door step, or on my drive home.  One time when I was about 8 years old, my dad came home from work really late and woke me and my sister up because the northern lights were just incredible!  We stood out on the front step wrapped in blankets in our pjs. lol

That's amazing! Totally jealous. I definitely do want to make a trip to not French Canada some time. Quebec is just so easy to drive to from my area so I haven't really been any where else.
