You’ll see some rocky out­crop­pings that are com­mon spots to see Dall Sheep, up on the rocks.

Not only does this stop offer unique keep­sakes of your trip to Alas­ka, but you get a nice chance to meet and talk with a local who calls this part of the state home.

There are 9 inter­net sta­tions avail­able for you to use. If you have your own device, wifi is avail­able from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Or if you want to stretch your legs, there’s a deck and lawn to lounge on while you eat. It’s pret­ty ordi­nary non-chain, fast food with good malts and a good old-timey feel.

Accord­ing to locals, this is the best ice cream in Alas­ka. It’s made by locals Don and Lois Lintle­man, using cream har­vest­ed from cows on their farm.
