the bridge opened in 1956, the third one on this spot. Plans are underway for a new one
the road reaches the Nisutlin river, close to Teslin
And it only gets better as we further negotiate the Rockies
nobody on the road, and the view stays like this for miles and miles

they have a great view in the backyard. Fresh green leaves and old ice in front of Dawson Peaks
from Watson Lake to Whitehorse
by a homesick GI in 1942, the habit of planting a signpost with name of and distance to home has grown into a huge artificial forest

Many of them were illegally removed from the original position....

After passing the continental divide we
stopped at Dawson Peaks Resort for a splendid view and a very good burger.
We did not see any wildlife until near Whitehorse where a mule deer crossed the road.
the Sign Post Forest is a must-see for every ALCAN visitor
There are thousands of plates and signs from all over the world. Many are illegally taken
here they serve the best burgers in the whole Dawson Peaks area. Nice folk to
the Nisutlin Bay Bridge has a span of almost 600 meters, making it the largest bridge on the ALCAN
an icy Yukon River just outside Whitehorse
