Building and thousands of artifacts restored by National Park Service. Skagway’s legendary outlaw, Jefferson Randolph Smith, gained his fame for cons like telling newly arrived Gold Rush stampeders that a family member had just telegraphed in distress and required quite a bit of money.

Many of us know the dining offerings on the Fish’s menu, but I see great things coming from the new kid.

Making Spruce Tip Jelly
web-posted Wednesday, May 4, 2016
Spruce tips are out, and you can use them in jelly, spring tonics, gin and tonics, spruce salt, spruce sugar, spruce bud infused vinegar and pickled spruce buds.

Charlie Papazian gives a good recipe for five gallons of spruce tip beer in “The Complete Joy of Home Brewing” which he says tastes a little like Coca Cola, but it’s not bad as it sounds.
