Is this really Planet Earth?
 
I have been to some very strange looking places in my life but this area took me by surprise.
Several years ago one of my nephews named Donny that lives in Alaska brought us up to Hatcher Pass located approx 20 miles north of Wasilla. There is a old historical abandoned mine at Hatcher Pass along with Red Cabins for snow skiing and winter activities.
When we first arrived at Hatcher Pass I was snapping photos of the Red Cabins and mountains. Then my Donny said let's go to another place you really have to see ...

Beautiful Palmer Alaska by Robert Swetz
 
If you drive north on Glenn hwy around 20 miles you will pass Eagle River and then around 15 miles north of Eagle river you will come to come to Palmer north east and Wasilla north.
Palmer is a small town with a low population with homes surrounded by HUGE mountains.
This photo above was taken off old Glenn hwy by the old steel bridge and in this area by the Knik River you can park your RV's by the river to camp, boat and fish.

Every time Robert Swetz visits Alaska he goes through a transition
 
Robert Vegas Bob Swetz has been visiting Alaska off and on for 2 years now! Sometimes for 1 week, 2 weeks, 2-3-4 and even 5 months during this time.
There seems to be something going on between myself and Alaska that I can't grasp. When I'm in Alaska it's so different than the Lower 48, more relaxed and something that creates some change within my mind.
There is nothing wrong with this change, I like it and these types of thoughts really don't seem to cross my mind unless I visit Alaska.
Last year I … (18 comments)
