Photo Essay: Portage Glacier – South of Anchorage Alaska

Burns and Portage Glacier

 


 

A turnoff from the Sterling Highway just south of Anchorage, on a route that takes you to Wittier, Alaska, there is a stopoff to view Alaska’s most viewed glacier – Portage.

Burns glacier is visible from the parking lot of the Begich-Boggs Visitors Center, to get a good look at Portage, it’s necessary to take a lake cruise that’s offered in the summer.
