Purchasing Real Estate in Alaska by Robert Swetz
My first visit to Alaska was back in 2001 and I have been living and traveling back and forth to Alaska from the Lower 48 for around 4 years now.
I have traveled all over the USA and other parts of the world and I have yet to find a place as quiet and beautiful as Alaska.

Northern California, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Oregon, Utah, Minnesota and other states have come close to the beauty Alaska has to offer but not quite as quiet and or serene. 

I am working purchasing yet my second piece of real estate … (3 comments)

Robert Swetz would love to have a pilots license in Alaska
 
With all the airplanes in the state of Alaska and all the pilots that use their airplanes for business and tour guides and pleasure, Vegas Bob would love to have a pilots license.
It is so much easier to obtain a pilots license in Alaska vs in The Lower 48 so the thought has crossed Vegas Bob's mind many times.
With all the vast land of Alaska it would be totally amazing to be able to fly to areas that cars and boats can't travel to.

Bald Eagles from Homer Alaska by Robert Swetz
 
The day after fishing for halibut we took a drive once again out to Homer Spit to pick up our fish that had been processed and frozen.
While we we driving back there were bald eagles every where perched up on telephone poles and the tops of buildings. I pulled over the car and quietly grabbed my camera and rolled down the window to capture this photo of two bald eagles. Now these eagles might not look very big in the photo but these two birds were HUGE.

Clouds over Turnagain Arm Alaska by Robert Swetz 
 
Turnagain Arm is located south of Anchorage and is located on the northwestern part of the Gulf of Alaska.
When driving south of Anchorage towards Girdwood, Seward, Hope, Homer, Soldotna and Kenai Alaska there are large mountain ranges and great views for taking photographs.

This wonderful cloud photo was taken early Saturday morning 8/27/2016 on our … (9 comments)
