Along the Richardson Highway at mile 197.6 on the Richardson Highway is a little pull-off with a monument on the east side. The monument is for Wilds P. Richardson, a brigadier general the U.S. Army. He was well known as an Alaska explorer and was commissioned to construct the 380-mile Richardson Highway (later named in his honor). The monument is situated on a little hill north of Summit Lake and overlooks the Gulkana Glacier. The view is spectacular and it’s definitely worth stopping if you find yourself on the drive.
