Sunny Beautiful Day In Alaska

Alaska by Robert Swetz

 

 As we were driving along the Turn Again Arm south of Anchorage Alaska I looked to the right and saw very little wind.

 I knew that I could capture a great reflection of the snow cap mountains.

 All I can say about this photo is total beauty of God's hand at work, and what a work of art it is ...

Absolutely breathtaking photo, Robert Vegas Bob Swetz ;  can definitely see God's hand - couldn't be more perfect.  And Bob, I hesitate to tell you this, knowing how you love Alaska, I hate S-N-O-W!!  I believe I love the Hawaiian Islands where I lived a few years in my lifetime...I believe I love the tropical islands as much as you love your Alaska.  Perhaps one day we will each find ourselves living in our favorite part of Planet Earth.

Hello Jane ...

Born and raised in the Midwest with long winters and temps reaching 20 below zero I also hate the cold and snow. But when I speak of Alaska and share photos it is usually with long summer days with 22 hours of sunlight. I have warmer places to hang my hat in the winter, Vegas, SoCal, Philippines and South East Asia, but there is no better place to hang your hat during those extreme hot summer days then ALASKA ;o)

Hi Robert Vegas Bob Swetz ,  Hey, I really like what you wrote.  I was born and raised in Green Bay 'Packerland USA.'  Then moved to Chicagoland and lived there for lots of years...you know, winters where you believe you are living in a refrigerator or freezer.  As a kid, I loved tobogganing down the huge Pottawatami Mountain and ice skating nightly and thawing frozen toes by a heat register (bad ides, huh?!?)  But I got to hate the below zero days, and Januarys with no sun, and dirty, dirty, black colored snow piles.... So, we opened a Real Estate office in Central Florida - Orlando....me and 6 of my children.  I love Florida....But #1 is still the Hawaiian Islands.

Thank you for sharing your Alaska.  The way you write it, I would like that part of Alaska also.  In the cold and dark months, fly to Waikiki.  Yep, I am one of the crazy ones, I love Waikiki and never find it commercial at all.
Thank you for sharing.  I've been enlightened.  Where you from in the MidWest?

Hello again Jane ...

I am from Minnesota and did you know that there is a HUGE connection from the Hawaiian Islands to Alaska?

Many rich retired people have summer homes in Alaska and when the snow flies they go back to their winter home in Hawaii ;o)

PS: I have been to Florida several times and have been traveling down the west coast from Oregon to San Diego for 40 years now.

Even though I moved to Las Vegas 20 years ago I am the CALIFORNIA KID

Hi Robert Vegas Bob Swetz , I picked up that connection Hawaii-Alaska from your first comment.  Wonderful.  I also love the coast from Oregon to San Diego.  My Mom's side of the family were born and raised in Minnesota.  Original family home was Sturgeon Lake/Willow Lake area and later, Duluth.  One of my aunts was a Benedictine nun who taught at St. Scholatica's College in Duluth.

Hello again Jane and we do live in a small world ...

I know Duluth very well my mother lives there and all my other family live in the Minneapolis area, and other scattered through the state. I also lived in Portland Oregon for 5 years back in the late 70's and traveled back and forth from MN to OR and have been down the pacific coast from OR to CA around 20 times.
