Enlightened by the Beauty of Alaska by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz 2015
On my first visit to Alaska in 2001, I spent 7 days driving from Anchorage to Seward, Homer and Wasilla which is approx 1500 miles.
The memories of Alaska in 2001 lasted for many years after and at that time I was enlightened in Seward Alaska.
When I was in Seward in 2001 I climbed a mountainside made of shale, approx 1000 feet. And when I reached the top, I had a 360 degree view of Seward and the bay.
