But Where Are We Right Now? …

The first settlement that most people encounter when heading North into the Yukon is Watson Lake, the most popular attraction of which is Signpost Forest.  Started in 1942 when a US Army engineer erected a sign pointing to his home town in Virginia, visitors have been adding their own signs, license plates, and mileage markers ever since.  Today the site spans several acres and holds over 70,000 signs.
