British Columbia Tourism Region : Cariboo Chilcotin Coast
- Lac la Hache - Means 'Axe Lake.' Interviewing in 1946 a great-granddaughter of Peter Skene Ogden, the famous HBC Chief Factor, we were told that, after a mule with a load of hatchets fell into the lake (possibly through the ice),
- it became known as Lac la Hache. Confirmation is supplied by an 1871 entry in the diary of GSA. Sargison in the Provincial Archives: 'Derives its name from the Hudson's Bay Company having lost a lot of axes loaded on an animal.'
