Watson Lake, Yukon City Profile

Watson Lake is another town found on the Alaska Highway.  The population of the town as of 2004 was 1,547 which makes it one of the top cities in the Yukon.  Its located off the Liard River at one of the major junctions in the Alaska Highway.  Robert Campbell Highway and the Alaska Highway meet right at the Western edge of town.  This is one of my favorite towns to encounter on the Alaska Highway purely because of the Northern Lights Centre.  The other is Signpost Forest which is probably one of the most unique places you can go to in the world.  Sign Posts from all over the world are located at this place.
