Day 356: Pamplona is to Watson Lake as Bulls are to…

…Street signs, of course.  The kids decided to make a video of themselves running amongst the over 100,000 street signs here in the Sign Post Forest here in Watson Lake, Alaska:

The sign post forest was started by a homesick GI working on the AlCan.  He put up a sign from his hometown here.  Others followed, and the rest is history:

There are of course street signs, but there are also plenty of license plates and pretty much anything that can be written on has been nailed up here:

After viewing the forest, we stopped in at the adjacent visitor center:

The visitor center includes a nice museum on the history of the Alaska Highway:

Tonight we’re overnighting just outside of town in a pullout.  See the trip map for today’s drive.
