While researching our trip to Alaska, I read about the Sign Post Forest. I brought a Mountaineer sign from home and figured I might put it up if it seemed worthwhile. I had no idea what was in store!

The full service, clean visitor center furnished a hammer and some nails for us to add our own piece of home.[D Springer, 03/17/2017]
