We made it to Watson Lake, Yukon (Canada) on June 13. On our way here we saw our first grizzly bear on the side of the road on the Alaska Hwy. We couldn't get a photo because we were pulling our 5th wheel trailer at the time and there was no spot to pull over.
All the little towns along the Alaska Hwy in both Canada and Alaska usually have something to lure travelers to stop. This town has "The Signpost Forest". The tradition was started by a lonely G.I. from Danville, Illinois (USA). He put up a sign for his home town in 1942. Now there are over 69,000 signs from all over the world.
This is a copy of the original sign.
The first sign by that lonely G.I. was posted in 1942 before there was a town of Watson Lake.
Cute sign...unfortunately we didn't bring a sign to post.
There is row after row of signs...this is just a small section.
Tired yet...there's more!
Hubby found this one for Brookpark, Ohio. My father, mother and oldest brother all worked (and retired from) at the General Motors plant in Brookpark, Ohio.
Stay with us for more photos of our drive up the Alaska Hwy!
Have a lovely day!
