The Kenai Peninsula and Southcentral Alaska Sights


  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Fodor's Review

The 1964 earthquake destroyed the town of Portage. The ghost forest of dead spruce in the area was created when the land subsided by 6 to 10 feet after the quake and saltwater penetrated inland from Turnagain Arm, killing the trees.
