Striking GOLD in Dawson City, Yukon!!
 
08:14
This week we are stepping back in time and exploring the biggest gold rush in history in Dawson City, Yukon. The Klondike gold rush happened between 1896 and 1898 and the area is STILL overflowing with gold! I got a chance to spend some time with one of the miners in the area and got a chance to go panning for gold! This town really fells like you are in the wild wild west. Everything from the Sour Toe Shot, to can can dancers, all the way to dusty streets full of buildings that haven't been touched since the 1890s! Truly a town perfectly preserved in time!

Gold mining in the Yukon: Gold panning, sluicing, and more.
 
19:15
Take a short trip with me to Dawson City, Canada. Have a look at how the "average, not for TV" miner gets gold. No staged arguments, breakdowns, or deadlines. No scripted drama, or ridiculous million ounce goals. Just average miners trying to make a few bucks and have a little fun doing it. The mining season lasts from May to the first of October, or as soon as the water freezes. Thanks for watching. This is a copy of a previously uploaded video. I was forced to re upload this video due to technical reasons, sorry for any inconvenience.

This classic short film from Pierre Berton depicts the Klondike gold rush at its peak, when would-be prospectors struggled through harsh conditions to reach the fabled gold fields over 3000 km north of civilization. Using a collection of still photographs, the film juxtaposes the Dawson City at the height of the gold rush with its bustling taverns and dance halls with the more tranquil Dawson City of the present.

DISCOVER DAWSON Dawson City is an eclectic and vibrant northern community on the banks of the Yukon River. We boast a mixture of First Nations Heritage and Gold Rush History blended with an active Gold Mining and Tourism Industry as well as a thriving Arts scene. In brief, we’ve got everything you’re looking for in a northern town! Dawson’s past is marked by Beringia, an Ice Age period which formed our unique landscape and the treasures they contain, the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, who have called this area home for centuries, as well as the Klondike Gold Rush, that put this town on the tongue of stampeders worldwide. Dawson today is colorful and involved community that still has the look and feel of a wild-west town, with the personalities to boot. Miners, Artists, Wanderers, and the First Nations still call this place home.

The first significant gold rush in the United States was in Cabarrus County, North Carolina (east of Charlotte), in 1799 at today's Reed's Gold Mine. Thirty years later, in 1829, the Georgia Gold Rush in the southern Appalachians occurred. It was followed by the California Gold Rush of 1848–55 in the Sierra Nevada, which captured the popular imagination.

In 1896, prospectors found gold in a creek near Dawson City, triggering a stampede to the Klondike. Bolstered by dreams and heartened by stories of riches, thousands of miners struggled across Chilkoot Pass and floated the Yukon River to Dawson City. Soon a rollicking frontier town, Dawson filled up with desperate prospectors, shrewd entrepreneurs, Mounties and dancehall girls. Today, Dawson City is a lively place bursting with heritage sites and attractions. You'll feel the grit, heartache and golden dreams of the Klondike Gold Rush when you reach this authentic frontier town.

Today we made the 330 mile trek from Whitehorse to Dawson City -- home of the Klondike Gold rush!! To get there, we stopped for a break at the Braeburn Lodge and had one of their famous HUGE Cinnamon Buns! In Dawson City we started with a walking tour that included the SS Keno a retired sternwheeler, an original bank & post office from during the gold rush, a poetry reading from Robert W. Service, and finished with a play at the Palace Grand Theater! The next day we toured Jack London's cabin, saw Dredge #4 (largest gold dredging machine every built), and saw the original Discovery Claim spot that started the whole gold rush! My favorite part though, was being taught how to gold pan, and actually doing it a couple of times in Bonanza Creek! After all was said and done, Jeannie and I came away with multiple pieces of small gold nuggets!!

Families mining together is a common sight in the Klondike. It has been since as early as 1896, when George Carmack, his wife Kate, and his brother-in-law Skookum Jim found a thick layer of gold lying in the riverbed at what’s now known as Bonanza Creek, just 17km south of Dawson City — sparking the Klondike Gold Rush.

Retracing the Klondike Gold Rush - The Yukon, Canada
 
06:34
Known for its wilderness landscapes, wildlife and striking natural phenomena, the Yukon in north-west Canada is larger than life. This is a land rich with dramatic mountain vistas, wild rivers and crystal clear lakes. Southern Yukon has vast forests as far as the eye can see, and in North Yukon the tundra rolls on forever. In summer, you can enjoy the midnight sun extending your fun into the wee hours and in winter you won't want to miss the mystery of the northern lights. However, what makes the Yukon so well known is gold. The Klondike Gold Rush The Klondike Gold Rush took place at the end of the nineteenth century. Thousands of people streamed into the Yukon in search of gold and, at the peak of the gold rush, Dawson City was the biggest city north of Seattle and west of Winnipeg. Writers of the time in particular helped to immortalise the heady days of the gold rush. You can still see many signs of the gold rush when you visit, whether you hike the famous Chilkoot Trail or visit the historic city of Dawson, where the Palace Grand Theatre and Diamond Tooth Gertie's Gambling Hall put on nightly shows in true gold rush style. Is it still possible to find gold in the Yukon? Are you feeling lucky? There's still plenty of gold out there. It's just a matter of looking in the right place. Tour companies in Dawson City offer gold panning tours. If you're more serious, you'll need to check with Yukon Government about where you're permitted to pan.

History of Yukon River Dawson City Yukon
 
03:03
One hundred years ago, paddlewheel traffic dominated the Yukon River, bringing equipment to miners, precious commodities to residents, mail and newfangled catalogue goods from faraway and even visitors yearning for the adventure, beauty and mystery of the far north. Prior to existence of today's roads, these great vessels were the highway of the north, the lifeblood of the Yukon. If you're looking for something unique to do in Dawson, you won't want to miss touring the Yukon River on the Klondike Spirit paddlewheel! Two-hour lunch and three-hour dinner cruises are available, with a licensed bar and knowledgeable interpreters on hand to provide rich historical background on the area, the river and the Gold Rush. The boat is also available to charter for weddings, reunions and other special events. There is no other tour boat like the Klondike Spirit anywhere in the Yukon, and the 20-kilometer round trip is an experience that's hard to beat for tasting the excitement and authenticity of Gold Rush era travel. he Klondike Spirit was constructed over a period of five years by Charlie House and Nick Turner of Eagle, Alaska. It has a welded steel hull and side-wheel propulsion, is three stories high with the wheelhouse and provides comfortable seating for 88 people. The captain, engineer, deck hands and interpreters dress in period costume, and there are plans to provide live piano music. Meals are made from local produce and reflect a northern theme. Tours start on or around the 1st of June and run until the beginning of September. Owner Robert Whitelaw and General Manager Brad Whitelaw took over the Triple J Hotel in Dawson in 2006, and felt the Klondike Spirit would compliment their hotel business, so they purchased the boat in the fall 2007. Brad has lived here since 1987, and has witnessed many changes and opportunities in the town; he hopes to expand the tours and possibly develop Dawson's waterfront, experience and great food, and to enhance visitors' understanding of the historical importance of the Yukon River to the Gold Rush, Dawson City and the Yukon. Tickets are available at the Triple J Hotel, located at 5th Avenue of the historical importance of the Yukon River to the Gold Rush, Dawson City and the Yukon.
