Reader's Digest Canada Logo By Karen Robock, readersdigest.ca of Reader's Digest Canada | Slide 1 of 20: Where you’ll find it: Mile 635, Alaska Highway, Watson Lake, Yukon Territory
If you’re cruising along the Alaska Highway, it’s worth making a pitstop at one of its quirkiest roadside attractions. Back in 1942, a homesick GI from Danville, Illinois, put up the first sign at Watson Lake to show just how far he was from home (2,835 miles, to be exact). Today, his sign is joined by more than 80,000 others in what’s become known as the ’Signpost Forest.’
If you think that’s wild, check out these hubcap totem poles in Whitehorse!
