Driving through the Pemberton Valley
on a summers day is nothing short
The dusty, pungent smell of fresh mown hay
jockey's for position in your senses
with the ancient cry of eagles.
The name Mount Currie is shared by both a
community and a mountain, and was named after
John Currie, who settled here in 1885 with
his Lillooet Indian (Lil'wat Nation) wife.
Mount Currie, the mountain, is
part of the Coast Mountains
in British Columbia.
There are pictographs on some of the mountains here
dating back 2,500 years.
Mount Currie, the community,
is agricultural and located
within the Pemberton Valley.
Some of the homes date
back to the 1817's and still stand today.
You can feel the history as
voices of long ago peoples whisper
their legends within the rhythms of life
lived through the land
as eagles lazily keen overhead.
