For the last 2 years, I've been coming to the Namekagon Barrens in mid-April to watch Sharptailed Grouse strut their stuff to impress their mates. This year, I was treated with a Northern Lights show when I arrived at the Barrens! They were pretty far in the distance, but it was still a very cool experience. One of the things I love about this area is that the nights are absolutely silent. A quite environment like this is all too rare these days.
