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.
The peace of mind that ran through my mind and body was very hard to explain. And while I was siting there looking at the "Beauty of Alaska"and there were 4 large Bald Eagles flying only 30 feet from me going in large circles.
I just could not believe what I was seeing, and when I arrived back in the Lower 48 I wrote about my experience and told everyone.
 
 
Since my visit in 2001, I had the chance to visit 4 different times in 2014 with approx 90 days out of the 4 visits.
On my visit in 2014, I went to some of the same places I had visited in 2001. Only to find the "Beauty of Alaska" even more intense. Followed by many new places I had never seen.
 
 
I have traveled all through the States of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Minnesota, Idaho, Oregon, California, Utah, Tennessee, New Mexico and another dozen states in America. I have even traveled to Thailand, Burma, Singapore, Taiwan and other countries in South East Asian.
 
 
And through all my traveling, I have never come across any areas like the "Beauty of Alaska"
There have been areas that have come close, but just not as beautiful, wide open and untouched.
 
 
I know there are places in the world that might be as beautiful and or more beautiful, but I want to see them for myself.
I have future plans of going to New Zealand and I do believe that there are areas of beauty that may come close to the "Beauty of Alaska" but I must see it to believe it.
 
 
All of the photographs on this post were taken in the fall of 2014. 
I have hundreds more and will be taking new photos of the "Beauty of Alaska in 2015.

Until I find that place that is as beautiful or more beautiful than Alaska, Alaska continues to be my number one choice
