Also: A certain someone will fight to the death over a bag of candy. Not for the candy, but for the bag.

It's not everyday we have a bag of that high quality.

No group picture to share? Who ended up going.? When is the next one planned for?

Our attempted group picture rapidly devolved into wild leaf-throwing fight. No group pictures were had :D.

Unfortunately the loss of that bag nearly made the #AJKMethod go down the toilet.

Lol, how many of you looked through SF's pics for a bag and got excited for a minute when they saw the small, red bag, only to realize it's a first aid kit bag.

Sorry. Forgot to put in an ending to my TR..

Contrary to the reports on how we ended, I would like to put all the myths to rest and say the real ended.

(1) Myth: It was getting dark. Wrong. Even with darkness we still could have gotten great night time pictures.
(2) Myth: It was gold outside. Wrong. It couldn't not get any colder than it was on those stones where we waited on for the sunset and endured three snow storms.
(3) Myth: No spectacular sunset. Wrong. One cannot predict these things. All you need is a flash of light and you can get an amazing picture. Just as we were leaving the sun did pop up but by that time we were all packed up, and hence, a picture not taken.
(4) Myth: Mile Walk back to car. Wrong. After doing all that walking during the day, this little stretch back was like a piece of cake. Devil's Food Cake.

Finally. The real reason we ended.

As the night was starting to fade in we all wanted to see how we can maximize the new #AJKMethod. At this time, this method sounded awesome and we all wanted to maximize it and take advantage to the fullest extent.

With that in mind, we decided that our time has came, piled into the car, and slowly but surely, made our way back home.

Note: Thank you all for reading. For more info on the #AJKMethod please PM A3 as he is spending the most time on this as you can tell by his post 2 above.

Follow @aurora_alerts on Twitter, match the forecasted KP to this map, find a dark area (blue or darker) on this map, and check the weather forecast for clear skies.

Possible KP of 7 tonight.

I'm confused. Further south is better? Anywhere near YYZ to go?
