Hiking the Yellow Trail in Ilulissat, Greenland Under the Midnight Sun

I have never, ever felt such eager anticipation and jubilation as I did that night, sitting on a rock overlooking the Ilulissat Icefjord. I had never dreamed that coming to Greenland would provide experiences like this. That I would be so, so happy to be in such a cold place, that I would love the icebergs so much, or that I would get to see multiple whales swimming together next to those icebergs. That the sky would be so incredible, the warm pink and orange reflecting off the sea dotted with icebergs.
