The third leg of our trip was from Liard Hot Springs, BC to Watson Lake, YT. Travelling under cloudy skies and over some rough road, we still managed to see several bears and bison next to the highway. The trip also took us into and out of Yukon Territory six times along the way.
Watson Lake is famous for its “Signpost Forest” that was started during construction of the Alaska Highway. Our group sign was added to the other 100,000+ signs already in the forest and many pictures were taken in celebration of the momentous event. We will stay in the Yukon until July 9 when we finally cross into Alaska!
