There is no place like Alaska

There is no place like Alaska ...

My first visit Alaska was in 2001 followed by 2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018. After my first visit in 2001 I talked about my experience for months, I was taken away by it's beauty.

When I was given another chance to visit in 2015 I couldn't pass up the opportunity.

I try to visit Alaska around 3 time per year because I own property up there and I just can't get enough of Alaska. As a photographer of 40 years Alaska is a photographers dream. As my wife and I drove by Coopers Landing by the Kenai River I parked the car and took a stroll through some trees by the bridge hoping to not be attacked by a bear.

As I came to a open area I looked with total bliss at the beauty of the river through the trees. It seems like every corner a person turns while traveling in Alaska there is nothing but total beauty. And the more times I visit Alaska the less I want to return to the Lower 48, and you can see why by the beautiful photographs I have taken over the years.

Good morning, Bob... your posts and photos of Alaska long ago convinced me that there is no place quite like it.

Alaska is majority untouched by the development and "progress" we see in the lower 48.  It is such a gorgeous place and I love that you share your pictures with us.

Hi Robert Vegas Bob Swetz - Went to Alaska on a cruise back in 2003. It was the end of August.  We did a pontoon plane ride and landed on a lake, pilot's choice glacier helicopter landing, and a train ride to old mining town. Of course the ship went into College Fiords. Remarkable!!

We were lucky, nothing but great weather or all these trips would have been cancelled. Alaska is a special place.

A destination trip that has been on my wish list for years. I even watch the TV shows on Bravo wondering if I could make the move.

I love this picture!  That blue color of the lake is so amazing and enticing.  One of these days I hope to visit Alaska.

Absolutely gorgeous. About 10 years ago John and I took a driving trip to Alaska (took us 4 days just to get there) and we spent the next 10 days driving everywhere we could to check it out. We always thought we'd get back to do more spending time outside of our car. Several years later we did a cruise to see the ocean view of Alaska. Now it's time to go back again. It's a lovely place. -Kasey
