This was the most peaceful place I have ever visited. It was very soothing both to the eyes and to the ears. Very white as evident from the picture. No sound of people or cars, only a gentle sound of water flowing beneath the surface of ice. This is Lake Portage.

The Portage glacier used to be all the way out here and a visitor center was built on the edge of it, but the glacier has retreated since and now you can only see the remnants of the glacier like in the pic below - the part that is strickingly blue. You can't see the glacier from the visitor center. You have to keep driving further and cross a tunnel to get here. It is very hard to see even then. This is 12x zoomed.

And they say global warming is a myth.

Classic Western

I was driving in downtown Anchorage when I saw this truck. So very western :). I couldn't resist. Applied some sepia and film grain from Picasa to give that old rustic feeling.

It was a beautiful day. The clouds actually provided a nice vivid background. That's all I have to say for this picture actually.

On the way to Portage, I stopped at this scenic view point to eat my lunch. I was about to be done when this person came and stopped right in front of me. Then he went down to near the ocean. It was pretty windy outside. He probably was a rock climber. This was an irresistable shot.
