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
