Hi Robert (Alaska Bob) Swetz 

Great photos and I love the snow on the ground. I have been to Sitka which has a Russian influence but of course we were on a cruise in the summertime so no snow. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Brian ... the small town of Ninilchik is so beautiful, very small population and a town that Alaska Bob would enjoy retiring during the summer months

That's  quite a shot of the moose, even getting them to turn to face the camera

Hello Ed ... thanks my friend and it's very strange how tame some of these moose are, but one must be careful because they can charge you
