i just have to plug this little ice cream parlor i discovered in anchorage this summer... can't remember the street but it's near the captain cook hotel in downtown. it is called "liberty" ice cream and the man who runs the store is very friendly and generous with samples of all the delicious flavors. all the ice cream in general is beyond delicious but what i really loved, as a foodie, was the fun "alaskan" flavors they offered. fireweed and honey and AMAZING berry flavors. a great treat to carry with you too as you view the salmon on parade.
arg! 1 1/2 more years till i get my hands on more of that ice cream!
