    The last Canadian Indian battle took place there. (Call them indiginous people in Canada. The I word is no longer acceptable.)

    It was also the place that contributed to the formation of the Canadian Mounties, thanks to the Whiskey trade and the supposed American presence.


    My town, Pleasant Grove, was given the name to get away from the original name, Battle Creek, so named because our forebears massacred some Utes because they thought they had stolen some of Brigham Young's horses.

      You need to start a petition to go back to the original name.

        Or, in the TABCATS tradition, "Battle Creek at Pleasant Grove".

                  That looks like a beautiful hike. But can I skip the 50% grade parts?

                    Yes, those only come at the end if you want to touch the glacier.

                      Then I am interested!

                            As one of my good friends likes to say, "I'm from the second greatest Grove in the world." Ok, so Pleasant Grove isn't #1, but it is #2.

                              I haven't seen this thread before so I'll give it a try. That one week a year in August when it's warm and it doesn't blow and the college students are gone, it's really nice around here.

                                I am still somewhat new to the place, but after years of my dad telling me that my ancestor is Draper's namesake, I found that I come from the poorer non-settling Drapers.

                                I hope the town lets me stay.
