Portage is located just south of Whittier, just off the peninsula. It is one of my favorite places in AK so far, although it’s hard to pick a favorite sometimes. The valley is known for it’s massive wind storms and heavy rain and snow fall, and it’s those weather conditions that create these beautiful glaciers. We’ve been up here many times, but on this day we finally got to hike to Byron Glacier! Yeah!!!
