Midnight sun hiking
Something I love about midnight summer sun? The fact that you can spend the whole morning of a weekend day being lazy (taking time with your coffee, your breakfast, and a lazy walk with the dog) and getting things that just cannot be put off any longer (laundry, filing, vaccuming, etc) and still get off for a hike at 3 in the afternoon without even pausing to think about daylight. If you'd gone in the morning you would have brought lunch, now it's going to be dinner. And 17 miles later you show up at your doorstep right around bed time. Love it.
