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
