Canada, eh? The Sign Post Forest in Watson Lake

Once upon a time in 1942, a young man was tasked with the replacement of a road marker sign.  In an inspired moment of homesickness, he not only replaced the sign, but improved upon its design: adding the name and distance to his hometown, from the remote Watson Lake, Yukon Territory.  Over the years, fellow travelers have done the same.

Here is a result of their wonderful work in Watson Lake (and acts of vandalism at home!): The Sign Post Forest.
