So over the years I have made many video for various things and reasons. I decided to put a quick reference of them from youtube, this is some of them. hope you find some interesting.
A few years ago we made a trip to the Washington DC area and did several of the tours and saw some statues, this one I felt was speaking recently.
So we just finished another E-Book. This one is a picture book of black bears that are seen in and near Ketchikan Alaska. Many people travel as tourists to Ketchikan every year, most want to see black bears in the wild. Some get a chance to see them, many do not. Seeing them depends on the tide and the time of the day as well as bears can’t tell time, so they show up when they want. This book is a combination of many years, just waiting until they arrive.
So with all this extra time, I designed a few shirt designs that make a statement. If your interested I can also put the designs on lots of other products, ie hats, phone cases, pillows, lights, clocks and much more, just leave a message, thanks.
My wife and I have lived in Alaska since 2000, we have lived in the SE part of the state in Ketchikan since 2008. Ketchikan has a large amount of totem poles. As a photographer I have enjoyed taking pictures of many of them. We recently compiled some of our pictures and placed them in both in a E-Book as well as in a hard copy. The book can be found on Amazon. If you like totem poles or are curious about them, please check it out. Thank you.
A few weeks ago, my wife and I were in Anchorage for a week of misc. appointments. One day we decided to drive up to Denali state park (About a 3.5 to 4 hour drive each way). On the way back we stopped at this memorial that we saw when we were driving up there.
As you can see there was still snow on the ground and the place didn’t have any other visitors. I walked thru the snow, a few places almost waist deep, but the end result was well worth it. Today is Memorial Day in the United States, a day that we reflect on those that gave their lives to make this country great. Please read each of the inscriptions on the walls. Some are more weathered then others. If you are in Alaska and have some time, if you are driving to Denali State park, I suggest stopping by here and seeing this memorial for yourselves.
Thank the veterans of the USA.
When someone mentions “Anchorage”, what thoughts go through your mind? Cold? Dark? Depressing? Igloos? Eskimos? Dog sleds? We just spent a week there, as we had some appointments that we needed to take care of. This was not our first time there, We have visited Alaska’s largest city many times over the past 19 years. For the most part, Anchorage is like many cities in the lower 48 states. It has fast food, it has some crime, it has some places that aren’t the best to travel after dark or alone. But it has so much more. Yes it receives snow some during the winters. In fact it snowed off and on for two days while we were there. They do not have 6 months of darkness, in fact there is no where in Alaska, that is true. Yes they have extended daylight in spring and summer, and decreased sunlight during the fall and winter. They have beautiful sunsets, if you know where to look. This was before sunset
This was as the sun was setting.
Anchorage has a lot to offer, during any season of the year. It is the hub of Alaska and many flights start or end there. It’s the city that is most visited when someone talks of Alaska. It is not Alaska’s capital, Juneau is, which is in the SE part of the state. If your travels give you the chance to spend time or visit Anchorage, take it, it’s a place on many people’s bucket lists.
