Nature Is Reclaiming This One Abandoned Alaska Spot And It’s Actually Amazing

As you hop on the picturesque Seward Highway heading south on the Turnagain Arm towards the Kenai Peninsula, you’ll drive through a tiny town known as Portage. It’s so small that if you blink, you’ll most definitely miss it. But don’t worry, if you’re feeling confused it’s only because the town really doesn’t exactly exist any longer. You see, when the notorious 1964 Good Friday Earthquake hit, the little boomtown of Portage sunk 6-10 feet into the ground. Although it was impossible to rebuild, nature is now reclaiming this abandoned spot and the end result is actually amazing. Just see for yourself…

Right by Portage through a tunnel carved into the bottom of a mountain is where you’ll find the one tiny town in Alaska that was just named the weirdest place in America. Also, you don’t want to miss this drone that flew high above Alaska’s Turnagain Arm and captured something truly stunning.
