In search of ??? in Portage, Alaska

Amanda and I headed out to Portage again for the second time this weekend. This time we took Macy along and it's probably a good thing. Yep, Macy is my best bud, she's a lot of fun and lets me live in my house. But there wasn't a lot that caught my photography eye, so she got some extra attention.
 This stream reminded me of when I lived in South Carolina.
 Except for the mountains in the background of course.
 Macy was getting her workout for the day. I think our hike was a little longer than our normal daily walk.
 Dueling photos.
 Nice peaceful spot that took me several hours to re-find yesterday. I hadn't been back in here in a few years, and the National Park Service had make some nice campground improvements. With these improvements, I knew where I was but couldn't find where I wanted to go.
Macy was being adventurous, but I kept a close eye on her. There were plenty of bear signs around. Didn't see any though.
This is where she was checking out. I love this little fall. Actually it's not all that little. It runs down the side of a mountain, but it's nice and peaceful. 
These chunks of Portage Glacier were of pretty good size. With the wind blowing, you could feel the temperature change. The wind did keep the skeeters off of my pasty white legs. Yep, I was wearing shorts.

Looks like an interesting place for a walk. Not sure about wanting to come across a bear though.
