A snow cone is a tasty frozen treat made with shaved ice and flavored syrup. It’s basically ice covered with sugar and sold for a 100% markup. But they are awesome so I don’t care. They are perfect on a hot day. I had my first snow in a few years the other week. I was hiking the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail in Anchorage and went four miles out to the beach. I took a couple of photos of the spectacular view and started to head back down the trail when I noticed a couple of kids munching on snow cones. I instantly knew that there was an ice cream man around because nobody carries around snow cones. And once you see a snow cone, you want a snow cone. I quickly located an ice cream truck posted up in the parking lot and I forked over a few bucks to buy a liter of Mountain Dew and a snow cone. I sipped my Dew, I enjoyed my cone, and I felt like I was on top of the world and I practically was. It will be hard to top that snow cone.
