Pam at The Start...

From Shipshewana, IN it takes a long time to get to the start of the Alaska Highway.

The Alaska Highway was built during WWII to protect Alaska from any potential invasion. At the time there was no way to get troops and supplies there. So Canada allowed US troops to build this road. Along the road today you see pictures in restaurants of the road being built. In some towns there are old trucks from this effort. We will post some pictures of these trucks as time allows.
