The Yukon Passage

I came across a pretty good video a while back and have watched it a couple times since. I wanted to pass along in case you haven’t seen it as it is the kind of video that really gets me dreaming.

National Geographic got four men together to recreate the trip many made through Canada and Alaska during the Klondike gold rush in the 1890’s.

There is some interesting rafting, log cabin building, dog sledding, hiking and some of the good and bad that can go with all of that. They of course were resupplied along the way and certainly had some advantages that didn’t exist 100 years ago, but it is still a good view of what it must have been like to make that journey.

For more background on the what and why they recreated this trip, you can check out this Wikipedia page.

Here is the link to the full video on YouTube: Yukon Passage – National Geographic

You can also get your own copy on DVD from Amazon which I just might do.
