British Columbia Tourism Region : Cariboo Chilcotin Coast

Description From Owner:
  • Choelquoit Lake from a Chilcotin Indian word meaning 'fishtrap lake.'
  • Jester Peak - Don Munday (see Munday, Mount) saw this peak, close to Mount Waddington, as a jester 'at the emperor's feet.'
  • Mosley Creek - After Edwin Mosley or Mosely, one of the three survivors of the Chilcotin Massacre of 1864, in which fourteen white road builders perished on the banks of the Homathko.
  • Other creeks in the area are named for Tellot and Klattasine, leaders of the Indians.
  • Mount Munday - After W.A.D. 'Don' Munday, who, accompanied by his wife, Phyllis, made numerous expeditions into this area between 1926 and 1936. (See Waddington, Mount.)
  • Pantheon Range - The mountaineering party that undertook the exploration of the area in 1964 decided 'to name the peaks after deities from various mythologies.'
  • The catholicity of their nomenclature is evidenced by names such as Mount Astarte, Mount Juno, Manitou Peak, Osiris Peak, and Mount Vishnu.
