It never gets dark here!

Countries that are near the Arctic Circle (the top of Iceland touches the 66th parallel which is the Arctic Circle) stay light all summer and dark all winter. Since we are here in the summertime, it never gets dark. One night, Shawn and I were hiking on a glacier at midnight! In Antarctica right now it is dark all day long. I am glad I am not there. Having 24 hours of daylight makes it easy to do lots of things...but it also means that it is hard to sleep!

  1. I feel tired just thinking about the nonstop daylight.
    So cool that you got to be there for midsummer's eve!
