Alaska photographs by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz 8-13-2014

 

Alaska photographs by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz 8-13-2014
 
Here are just a handful of photographs from my iPhone that I took on my 17 day vacation in Alaska.
 
 
I also took many photographs with my Nikon D90 along with HD videos that I will be loading in the next several weeks.
 
 
This was my second visit to Alaska, my first trip was 25 years ago. This last visit was so much better than the first, with so much more time to travel and enjoy the scenery.
 
 
With one of my relatives living in Alaska for 4 years now and another very close friend of mine, Vegas Bob is going to be flying into Alaska quite often.
VB may even move there for 2-4-6 months out of the year ;o)
 
 
My novel I published 2 years ago ... "Happiness Within"
I spoke about some of the most beautiful places in the World that I have had the privilege of visiting.
Alaska is by far at the top of the list 
 
 
Discription of photos from the top down:
 
1st photo at top of post: Large river reflecting clouds 5 miles south of Wasilla AK
 
2nd photo from the top: Lodge on a small lake 40 miles north of Wasilla where people can take flights in small airplanes to view Mt McKinley and Denali National Park
 
3rd photo from top: Lake with mountains approx 40 miles north of Seward AK
 
4th photo is of Vegas Bob fishing on James Creek approx 3 miles north of Wasilla
 
5th photo 2nd from the bottom: Huge lake reflecting the sun with mountains and railroad tracks.
 
And the very last photo at the bottom of the page is of Red Cabins at a lodge at "Hatcher's Pass" approx 20 miles north of Wasilla AK.
