Here is one of our beautiful sunsets over Toolik Lake (from August 2004). We won't see the sun set up here until the end of July- the sun is just circling overhead right now. Personally, I no longer have a problem sleeping any time of day, despite the light. No insomnia for me! People come up with various solutions to cover up windows to keep the light out or just work so hard that they fall asleep anywhere. When I first started working up here I became so trained to sleeping whenever it was dark, that I had quite a problem when we drove down to Fairbanks and went to see a movie! I was out like a light.
