Watson Lake is on Highway 1. Why not drive from Vancouver to Whitehorse . . . you’d pass by this interesting ‘Forest’.
Signs have been appearing since 1942 when a US army officer decided it was a good idea to install a sign providing directions to his home town, distance along with an arrow…(one of two choices)
Apparently, he wasn’t the first!
There’s an eerie feeling as you walk through, so much history in a place that is really actually rather young. Who has been there, where were they from, did they know about this place before they arrived…it seems there is a myth that has grown that I didn’t know about before arriving here.
Will you pass through Watson Lake and leave a memento of your own?
We were in Watson Lake to photograph the new hospital before handover and all the ‘privacy’ issues associated with this.
