July 4, 1863: Dr. R twisted his ankle at the foot of the hill, so I had to carry all the goods to the top. He stayed long at (S)cwiten and, in his eagerness to see everything, nearly fell off.
This rock bluff about a kilometer south of the bridge crossing at Rogers Creek was known during the colonial period as Moody's Lookout. Named after Colonel Richard Clement Moody, commander of the Columbia Detachment of the Royal Engineers and Lt.-Governor of British Columbia, it commands a sweeping view of the valley. To the First Nations, it’s known as (s)cwíten (Sh-WEE-tin), or “Whistling Rock.”
