Title: DSC 7837
Description: As my father and I took off on an adventure towards Portage Glacier, the weather wasn't looking to good as the clouds began to form and snow started to fall. We were about towards girdwood when it was an almost all whiteout condition, but we decided to keep on going just to see what it looked like further up, as we got closer and closer the sun started to poke out a bit and we got excited! And we got to the parking lot of the lake the sun was almost completely all out and shined brightly all across the lake and mountains, and as we starred in awe in the glorious view that was upon us, I noticed a big tire cyclist that looked like an ant compared to the towering mountains cycling into the fog that started to engulf over the inches thick ice. I got out as quick as I could knowing that from a quote that many know photographers know, this picture told a thousand words.
