Holiday 1909, four members of the BCMC climb to the headwaters of Seymour Creek

Due to the changes in BC's Health Order, the September and October Socials will be held via zoom.

In August of 1909, four members of the BCMC set out to explore and climb around Loch Lomond, the headwaters of the Seymour Creek. 

In August of 1909, four members of the BCMC set out to explore and climb around Loch Lomond, the headwaters of the Seymour Creek. They were Fred Perry, a master tailor, camp cook, and official geologist to the trip, William “Billy” Gray, a cigar-maker’s apprentice who was in charge of the surveying and mapping equipment, Charles “Chappy” Chapman, a printer, photographer and log keeper, and Charles “Old Mac” Macdonald, a ship’s carpenter, sign painter, and artist. Each carried a fifty-pound pack up to Loch Lomond over the remnants of the Burrard Lillooet Cattle Trail, encountering a surprising number of miners and trappers on the way. The four also packed a rifle, surveyor’s sticks and other mapping tools, cameras, and a pie that had been bestowed on them at the start of their trip by a lady friend.
