Description From Owner:
  • Pacific Lake - So named because its waters run to the Pacific, whereas nearby Arctic Lake drains into the Arctic watershed.
  • Mount Vreeland - After Frederick K. Vreeland of New York, who travelled through this area tracing the route of Sir Alexander Mackenzie.
  • When Vreeland learned that Ottawa proposed to name this mountain after himself, he wrote to the federal authorities declaring, 'I have no valid claim for the naming of this particular mountain,' and he asked that the name not be confirmed.
  • No doubt feeling that Vreeland shone like a good deed in a naughty world, one in which many undeserving people strive to get mountains named after them, Ottawa retained Mount Vreeland.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
