Description From Owner:
  • David Thompson's 'Portage Creek.' One of the earliest routes for explorers entering British Columbia from the east was through Howse Pass and down the Blaeberry to the Columbia River.
  • In 1859 James Hector named this river Blaeberry, or Blueberry, because of the abundance of berries in its valley. His 'blaeberries' were probably our huckleberries.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
