YUKON

The Dawson Overland Trail

You need to know two things if you happen to be flying into Braeburn Airport. First, the relatively small and somewhat unkempt grass airstrip is just 914m long, so don't bring your jet. Second, and perhaps more importantly, you can ingratiate yourself with any of the locals listening on UNICOM by referring to it as "Cinnamon Bun Airstrip."

Before I explain, let's go back a few hundred years.

For a very long while the quickest way to get from Whitehorse to Dawson City was by boat following a supply route along the Yukon River for 533km.

If you happened to take that journey, you’d find the halfway point to be a welcome stopover: the warm and festive Braeburn Lodge.

Boats of all shapes and sizes plied the waters on the Yukon during the summer months, stopping off at the Brae, but once winter set in and the river froze, only experienced mushers and dog teams dared the journey. They could only carry a small fraction of the supplies of those vessels, and so life in the territory became governed by whether the river was open or frozen.

This balance worked even in paucity until the Klondike Gold Rush upset the rules of supply and demand.

Suddenly, a thousand urgent prospectors, and those who prospect upon them, needed more than the river could provide.

By regular passage the Whitehorse-Dawson Overland Trail was quickly carved out of the land. Demand that can't meet supply will find a way.

Fortunately for the lodge, the trail's trail intercepted their location with the river perfectly, and so they continued to meet the needs of weary travelers through to 1914. They were a welcome and warm stopover hallway along a rigorous journey.

Today, it's not the trail but the 708km Klondike Highway that has taken the traffic, running its own route past Braeburn, hitting a trifecta for being right where the traffic happens, up to the Alaska Panhandle.

Yet even now with all those automobiles and trucks, the past is not entirely lost. If you happen to drop in on the original Braeburn Lodge, at a certain time of year, and it doesn't matter if it is via the airport or highway or trail, you may be surprised to find fellow lodging guests whose demeanor harks back to the time the lodge was one of the most important points on the Overland Trail. You see, the lodge has become a crucial checkpoint on the Yukon Quest, a 1600km international sled dog race run between Fairbanks, Alaska and Whitehorse, Yukon. The competitors face some of the world's harshest and most treacherous winter conditions, but it's worse than that: not only is the trail difficult, but the opportunities given for support are strictly limited. Indeed, the originator of the Yukon Quest wanted to create "a race so rugged that only purists would participate." And he did. It is now known as the "most difficult sled dog race in the world."

But what does any of this have to do with a bun made from yeasty dough, the powerful punch of cinnamon, killer calories, and a deluge of icing? It's all about the Braeburn. That same lodge that has served travelers' vital respite for more than two centuries also makes a cinnamon bun reputed to be 9" across. I haven't had it, and I may die if I do, but for those who have slogged over mountains, treacherous ice, across ragged ravines, through freezing weather, and with just a few supplies left before they arrive…well, it could do the opposite and actually save your life.

For the rest of us who prefer flying in rather than slogging overland: if you ever tire of those $100 burgers, stop by for a $100 cinnamon bun instead. Before you leave, you'll be calling Braeburn Airport by its true name: Cinnamon Strip Airstrip.

Braeburn (CEK2)

The Dawson Overland Trail was built During the Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1800s, and for many years before and after, the quickest way to get from Whitehorse to Dawson City, was via the Yukon River. In those days life in the territory was governed by whether the river was open or frozen. During the summer months numerous boats of all shapes and sizes plied the route, but once winter set in and the river froze only experienced mushers and dog teams braved the journey. With Braeburn about half way along the trail, it was an important location to stock up, and refresh before continuing the long journey. Designed by Smallzz. Download v1.0
