1372-Destruction Bay, YT

Destruction Bay is a small First Nations village with a population of around 50 that was a relay station for truckers during construction of the Alaska Highway. In 1942 it earned its name when a storm with over 100 mph winds destroyed the village. The village is on the shore of Kluane Lake which is the largest lake in the Yukon at around 50 miles long.
