Description From Owner:
  • Courcelette Peak named after a village in France captured by Canadian troops in September 1917.
  • Fording River - Given this name by G.M. Dawson in 1884 because the trail frequently crossed and recrossed the stream, requiring much fording.
  • Henretta Creek - After C.M. Henretta, CPR mining engineer who had charge of the company's development of coalfields in the Fording River area.
  • Wisukitsak Range - After the mythical old Man of the Cree Indians.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
