Snowshoe Creek
In this despatch from 1862, Douglas mentions a Snow Shoe River, Carribou District, and to confuse matters of its exact location, BCGNIS lists four “Snowshoe Creeks”, two of which are in the Cariboo region in south-central British Columbia.1
Likely, it is the one that flows south into Keithly Creek,2 as this is nearest another feature Douglas mentions in this despatch from 1863: Snow Shoe Mountain, which is likely on or near present-day Snowshoe Plateau, or a lump term for all the summits of that massif.3
These features mentioned by Douglas were of mining interests for their rich specimens of Auriferous Quartz.
