The valley behind that row of yellow trees on the ridge is known as both Castle Creek and also Cottonwood Creek. One of the things that caused me a lot of confusion when we first moved to the Robson Valley was that a lot of the creeks and rivers had two names.
I would hear someone talk about the Blackwater River, then look on a map to see where it was and not find it anywhere. Over time it eventually dawned on me that most of the area drainages had two names: an official name and a local name.
Here are some examples (official name is on the left):
McKale Creek-----Blackwater River
Castle Creek------Cottonwood Creek
Nevin Creek-------King Creek
Holmes River-----Beaver River
Holliday Creek---Baker Creek
The early settlers in the valley had given those waterways names, but later the government gave them the official name, but in many cases the official name persisted.
