Day 16 – Watson Lake, Yukon Territories, Canada   1 comment

Our drives are becoming more memorable each day. Today we saw 4 black bears at separate times.

We were able to get the attention of the one pictured below while he was eating on the side of the road. I think we annoyed him so much that he decided to go to the other side of the road.

We also saw A LOT of bison along the road.

This bison in particular was the king of the daddies and look at that evil eye he was giving me.

Then there was construction again…

Once we all arrived to Watson Lake, we went over to the “sign post forest” to place our Adventure Caravan sign.

A few of our guests made their own sign and found a place to attach them.

Pictured below was Ralph and Robin. Ralph was a shop teacher and helped a lot of the guests make their signs.

While walking through the “forest” we found our good friend Mattie & Spence’s sign, placed in 2012, which lists all the years they were there!

The first sign was placed by an Alaska Highway construction worker in 1942.

Today there are over 75,000 signs from all over the world. We even found one from our local area. Read below what he had to say.

After our wonderful 4th of July dinner, which included Buffalo Hot Dogs provided by Ralph and Robin, we played bingo.
