Description From Owner:
  • Chilko River - from a Chilcotin Indian word meaning 'ochre river.' (See Chilcotin River.)
  • Dawn Treader Mountain named after the boat in C.S. Lewis's The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
  • Elkin Lake - After Ed Elkins, an Englishman who in 1890 became the first white settler in the Nemaia Valley, operating a trading post with his Indian wife. He left about 1900 after his brother, who had a post north of Tatlayoko Lake,
  • was murdered by an Indian.
  • Fishem Lake - Obviously good fishing here. The Chilcotin Indian name is Nach'eznadinlin, meaning 'river going off into lake.' A very short river empties Fishem Lake into Upper Taseko Lake.
  • Lastman Lake - Chilcotin Indians raided the camp here of a party of Shuswaps from Soda Creek, killing all but one man.
  • The survivor escaped and got home. Subsequently a revenge party from Soda Creek caught up with the Chilcotins at Kleena Kleene and inflicted casualties before returning to Soda Creek.
