Portage Area

6-15-2013 --- Today we were going to take it easy!  But there is always a surprise or two around the corner.  Along Portage Valley Rd enjoyed the continuing mountain and lake views.Portage 006Portage 034

And an interesting stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center!   They take in orphaned and injured animals.  If they can not be released, they have a home at the center.  A variety of animals----Porcupine 2012-06-15 Denny Droid 002
