One of the quirkiest attraction along the Alaska Highway is located near the town of Watson Lake, in Yukon territory, Canada. It’s a “forest” full of signs of various shapes and sizes hammered into vertical wooden posts driven into the ground.

The landmark was started by Private Carl K. Lindley in 1942, at a time when the Alaska Highway was being built. Watson Lake didn’t exist then, but there was a Military Air Base and airport on the site. Carl Lindley from Company D, 341st Army of Engineers, was working on the Alaska Highway near Lower Post, Canada, when he was injured and taken to the Army Aid Station to recuperate. During his time there, Carl’s commanding officer ordered him to repair and repaint the directional post that pointed to various points along the tote road.
