The Soldier's Summit Trail

Kluane Lake and the new highway. From this sign:
- November 1, 1942: From a soldier's diary: "Bitter cold. Canteens frozen and diesel like soft lard."
- November 13, 1942: From the Whitehorse Star: "Plans completed for dedication of the Alcan Highway next week... ribbon to be cut 10 a.m. Nov. 20."
