Me and Dick went across Portage Lake to see the glaciers on 1/16/2004
Small icebergs suspended in the ice
Dick engaged in sexual congress with the iceberg
As we rounded Byron Peak, Portage Glacier suddenly came into view
Portage Pass leading to Whittier
Another shot of Portage Glacier
A little B&W
An odd hole at the top of a serac, perhaps an old uprooted moulin?
Begich Peak to the northwest of the glacier
A poorly colored panorama of the glacier
Me and my new skis a few hundred feet in front of the glacier
Likewise, Dick and his snowshoes
Touching the glacier on land near the Burns Glacier, hang on, I've got a pulse!
Baird Peak (on the right) and Shakespeare Shoulder
The temperature was probably close to minus 20F that day, and it made for one refreshing hike!
Not at Portage, but during the same cold snap, my wife with frost on her eyelashes and hair
