Warm temperatures and long days in Alaska by Robert SwetzThe temperatures have been heating up in Anchorage, Wasilla, Palmer, Seward, Homer and surrounding areas of Alaska.Temperatures have been reaching around 50-55 degrees and the sun his very hot around the late afternoon hours.What I like so much about Anchorage and other cities is drive 5-10 miles out of the any cities in Alaska and you are in beautiful natural areas like the ones in these photos.At around 6:00pm yesterday the boys and I took a 15 minute drive and captured these great photos.The boys have lived up in Alaska with their mother for 2 years and after we visited their mother working at the mall, I asked them do you know what's so amazing about Alaska?And they said what?Drove 15 minutes south to the Turn Again Arm by the...

 Female Moose Models for Alaska Bob in Anchorage Alaska She was standing around 20 from me and I was wondering how close I should get to her, because she looked like she weighed about 1000 pounds. All I had was my old iPhone 4 to take these photos because I had left my iPhone 6+ in the car.  As I walked closer to her I saw her staring at me, so I tried to get some small trees between the two of us in case she started charging at me. I was very excited and my heart started pumping faster as I got closer to her.   I was able to get around 5 feet from her before she started walking away, and as I walked away I looked back to make sure she didn't turn around and follow me.  As I looked there she was eating from the tree branches again.I will be going for another hike tomorrow and will be su...

Beautiful Photographs of Alaska by Robert 'Alaska Bob' SwetzFor anyone that has never had the chance to visit Alaska you are really missing out. No matter what season it is in Alaska it is always beautiful.Here is a photograph of Anchorage that I took from the bluff of Point Woronzof near the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. I have been hiking and driving around many parts of Alaska now for 2 months and what I have noticed is, it's not as cold and miserable as everyone might think.Within the first 2 weeks of December when I arrived in Anchorage, my body had already adjusted to the cooler temperatures.The only difference when I go out and about is wearing long paints and a hooded sweatshirt. I haven't had to wear gloves, winter boots, and or large parka winter coats like ever...

 Published on Feb 6, 2016   The loss of Selena Annette Mullenax at Point Woronzof in Anchorage Alaska really bothered Robert Swetz. Robert Swetz viewed a special about the 80+ Statues that were constructed at the Cook Inlet by the Ted Stevens International Anchorage Airport. Robert Swetz aka Vegas Bob drove over to Point Woronzof to take some photographs and videos. Only to find out later that Selena Annette Mullenax and another young man had been 'Murdered' close to the Statues. Here is a special video that Robert Swetz took for the recent lives that were taken only weeks ago in Anchorage Alaska.Please pray for the comfort of the families and friends of the victims lost to this terrible loss ;o(     Statues Point Woronzof Anchorage AK Robert Swetz 2016 ... ▶ 2:36 https://www.youtube.co...
