Sign Post Forest!!

There are thousands of signs from all over the world posted here.

It is certainly quirky, but Watson Lake, Yukon is probably most famous for its Sign Post Forest. Started by a guy from the army while working on the Alaska Canada Highway, people from all over the world have added to the forest of sign posts. It was fun to walk through it and read so many signs people have hung. I met a couple from outside Toronto that wanted to hang a sign in honor of the guy’s father. His father traveled all over Canada as a trucker, but had yet to visit Sign Post Forest. They planned a trip to visit it, but the father died before they could begin the trip. So, the son and his wife traveled to Watson Lake so the son could hang a sign in honor of his father. I too a picture of him and his wife standing next to their newly hung sign and he took a photo of me standing under the Sign Post Forest sign. One of the fun things about traveling is to meet people and learn about their stories.

There is an amazing variety of signs posted here!

The next time I visit, I will be prepared and bring my own sign to hang!
