British Columbia Tourism Region : Kootenay Rockies
- After Captain Arthur Brisco, 11th Hussars, one of the heroes of the Charge of the Light Brigade. He was a great friend of John Palliser and joined him during his explorations in 1858-9.
- Mount Ethelbert - Named after the first nun to ascend the upper Columbia River.
- She died aboard Captain Armstrong's riverboat, the Ptarmigan, and was buried as Sister Ethelbert (a surprising name for a nun one wonders if Armstrong got it wrong). In any event Armstrong named the mountain after her.
