View from Portage Lake. Day one we arrived super early and had some time to kill. So we headed towards our first cabin for the night close to s town called Seward. Along the way we stopped at a nature preserve and saw so many cool animals. Right after that we took a small road to Portage Lake. The contrast between the Rock, Snow, and Vibrant Green trees was absolutely stunning. Not to mention the crystal blue lakes. We loved this area so much that on our last day we decided to come back and explore Portage and Whittier one more time!
