Now I'm taking you back to the Yukon. Wonder what Jake's Corner is? I was too! It is on the map but to my surprise I found there only a gas station with the diner! Today the diner is closed leaving only gas station.
There also is a story about this place...
The site was initially established as a U.S. military base for the construction of the Alaska Highway. At that time, a colonel by the name of Jacobson was in charge of the base. Somewhat annoyed by the need to go through Carcross to get to Whitehorse, Colonel Jacobson decided to build a more direct route without waiting for the official authorizations. Today, when we drive on the portion of the Alaska Highway that runs along Marsh Lake, we’re driving on Colonel Jacobson’s road. Jake’s Corner would have been named after Colonel Jacobson.
So long my friends,
