CARVING OUT A HOBBY
Roger Latondress is well known throughout
the north for his 300 lb door carved from
yellow cedar. The door took four years to
carve and depicts a bald eagle plucking a
salmon from the water. Commissioned by
Scott and Linda Goodwin for the Northern
Beaver Post Gift shop, located at Mile 650
on the Alaska Highway, it is fast becoming
a major tourist attraction.
A BIT OF HISTORY
The Gateway Tourism Association worked
hard to develop a historical display
depicting the rich aviation history of this
area. The display was open on July 28th,
2004 with an even more historical and
breathtaking Air Show which included
the Canadian Snowbirds Precision Flying
Squadron and four aerobatic stunt acts.
This project is proof of a true partnership
between the Gateway Tourism Association,
the Municipal and Territorial Governments.
It is open year round.
