Polar darkness

So this was an article that I came upon a couple of months ago is one that I found just really fascinating. The quotes included come from a wide range of people all around the Arctic Circle region.

One individual who they quoted had the same last name as my mom’s family, which I was very surprised to see. Her name is Gunda Hackbarth. Hackbarth is in fact a very German name.

Anyway, the article is entitled “Snapshots From a Land of Endless Nights” by Josephine Sedgwick at the New York Times. The pictures are also incredible. It’s really just a great read.
