The Soldier's Summit Trail

On Thursday, June 29th, 2017, Parks Canada hosted an Alaska Highway 75th Anniversary celebration at Soldiers Summit. Most of the celebration activities took place at the Soldier's Summit trailhead parking lot rather than up at the summit, and a more comfortable date was chosen. The highway opening ceremony actually took place on November 20, 1942, and the 50th Anniversary celebrations were done up at the summit on November 20, 1992. However, it was very cold - about -30°C with a breeze that took it even lower!
