Portage Lake and Seward

August 2, 2011

We headed south along the Parks highway, hoping to find somewhere South of Anchorage to stay for the night. We briefly stopped in Anchorage itself to go to a supermarket to pick up some dinner and then headed futher South on the Seward highway.

There were lots of turnouts where we could have camped for the night but most of them were very close to the highway which was the busiest road we’ve seen in a while. So we carried on until we got to the turn to Portage Glacier where we found a really nice spot right down on the Glacier lake.

Now we’ve come futher south and it’s a bit later in the year its almost getting dark at night. After weeks of 24 hour light we are so looking forward to there being night again. You don’t realise that’ll you miss it until you don’t have it.

In the morning we hiked up to a small glacier not too far from our night stop and then headed down the highway to Seward. We’ve definitely hit the touristy bit of Alaska – there are so many more people here.


We are going to spend a couple of days in Seward and try our hand at Ice Climbing and go on an overnight Kayak trip  – so should be a fun place.
