Braeburn Lodge - World Famous Cinnamon Buns

The Braeburn Lodge is located at mile 55 on the Klondike Highway about an hour from Whitehorse, Yukon. It is famous for its very large cinnamon buns. The buns looked more like a cake. It took several days to eat even after sharing, I am told. The story goes that a small airplane had a blowout in the cold winter and used a bun for a tire.

The lodge is a checkpoint for the Yukon Quest dog sled race. The Cinnamon Bun Dog Sled Race, a 200 mile run, is held in February.
Compare the owner of the lodge to the figure of the fisherman below.
The fisherman figure is sold in the Santa Claus House in North Pole, Alaska, about 15 miles from Fairbanks. The figure is about 12 inches tall.
