Description

The mv Ptarmigan, an 80-foot vessel, passes within 300 yards of the terminus of Portage Glacier, a relic of the Ice Age. From the boat you can watch for fractures of ice break off the glacier and crash into Portage Lake below, where the now-icebergs are subject to the whims of the wind.
