Description From Owner:
  • Glundebery Creek - Derived from the Tahltan Indian word meaning 'hungry mice.'
  • Horseranch Lake - There never was a ranch here, but packers found that the area around this lake provided good winter pasturage for their animals and took to calling it 'The Horse Ranch.'
  • Kedahda Lake - From the Tahltan Indian word meaning 'moose antler.'
  • McDame Creek - After Harry McDame, who discovered gold on this creek in 1874. He was the longtime partner of another black West Indian, J.R. Giscome (see Giscome).
  • Meek Lake - After R.J. Meek, in charge of the McDame detachment of the BC Provincial Police in the 1930s.
  • He served in the RCAF and RAF in World War Il, winning the Conspicuous Gallantry Medal and the Distinguished Flying Cross.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
