Description From Owner:
  • Intersection Mountain - This mountain stands where the 120th meridian (which becomes the BC-Alberta boundary north of here) meets the Continental Divide (which becomes the boundary south of here).
  • Jarvis Pass - After E.W. Jarvis, CE, who used this pass in 1875 when exploring a route from Quesnel to Edmonton for the CPR. On this trip he almost starved to death.
  • Kitchi Mountain - A Cree Indian word meaning great' or 'mighty.'
  • Moonias Mountain - The Cree Indian word for 'white man.' Monias, on the BCR south of Peace River, is the same word.
  • Morkill River - After Daiby Brooks Morkill, BCLS (1880-1955), who worked in this area in 1912-13.
  • He is remembered by the Corporation of BC Land Surveyors as the man who introduced the 'Ceremony of the Spats.' In 1929, when president of the corporation, Morkill came to the annual meeting wearing spats.
  • Derisive comments were made about these very 'unsurveyor-like' articles of apparel. Unmoved, Morkill kept them on until the moment when he handed over to the incoming president.
  • Then he took them off and presented them, autographed, to his successor.
  • Since that time spats have been the regalia of the president of the Corporation of BC Land Surveyors, though the original much-autographed spats have long since been replaced.
  • Narraway River - After A.M. Narraway, controller of surveys, Ottawa, who visited the river in 1922.
