367-Portage Glacier, AK

Portage Glacier is about an hour outside Anchorage. To see the glacier you have to take a boat trip on the dog-legged lake to get around the corner. Once there you can see the result of global warming after you have seen the photos in the lodge of the glacier just a few years ago.
