Mike Boileau

Mike Boileau was lured into the mysteries of the Lost Creek Valley in 1979. He looked without succes for the famed tent-shaped-rock in the Spindle Cayon but found material with significant traces of gold and the wreck of a Mitchell B-25 sitting right on top of a mountain. The photo(© Mike Boileau) shows Mike's lawyer-friend Thomas Sprague standing next to the remnants of the B-25. Click on photo for enlargement. In later years the wreck inspired stories about its mission and cargo, one involving "Nazi Gold."
Mike's suspenseful story, this time told by himself, will soon be published on

Bridal Veil Falls at Pitt Lake

This postcard picture (taken around 1906) showing the "Bridal Veil Falls," was taken by New Westminster photographer W.T. Cooksley.
NOTE: 24 November. Based on recent photographs of the falls taken by Doug King it is quite possible that these falls are now known as the Defrauder Falls. Doug will return to the falls in April or May next year to get "another picture from as close an angle to your original as I can." To be continued! Thanks Doug.
