The One Mesmerizing Place In Idaho To See The Northern Lights

Seeing the Northern Lights is an item on pretty much everybody’s bucket list. However, many people are under the assumption that this incredible phenomenon is something that can only be observed in places like Alaska or Norway. Well, that’s simply not true and Idahoans actually don’t have to travel that far to be witness to this amazing event. Priest Lake in northern Idaho is a popular vacation spot all year round for its many recreational opportunities, but not many people realize that this place also provides the perfect conditions for spotting the Northern Lights.
