Portage Lake Summer Scenery Alaska USA

As a man wanders through the wilderness landscape in Portage, Alaska in the USA, he stops to admire the picturesque scenery of Portage Lake, the glacier and the colorful fireweed. Summer is one of the prettiest times of year in Portage, Alaska as the brilliant sunlight reflects off the calm surface of the lake and the landscape which is ablaze in vibrant green hues.

Portage Lake was formed behind the terminal moraine of the Portage Glacier when it first began receding and today the glacier face remains in the water to a depth of about 100 feet. There is a high amount of silt deposits in the lake making it impossible for any type of fish to survive in these cold waters.

When hiking through the trails towards Portage Lake in Alaska, USA during the summer months, one should always be on alert for any wildlife in the area, especially the bears. The scenery from this point is beautiful as the snow slowly disappears from the mountain peaks as the summer sun becomes warmer.
