Pkols

Enjoying the views from the top of Mt Doug in Saanich, BC...
Young love at the top of Mt. Doug...
Mt Douglas in Saanich was a popular place to be this past weekend as warm weather and frequent sun continues to dominate greater Victoria. The mountain offers spectacular 360 degree views of the southern island.

Pkols is the traditional Coast Salish name for the mountain. A couple of years ago, they started a process to have the mountain officially re-named. The greater community is supportive of the movement.

As far as I know, the name change isn't official yet, but a prominent sign at the peak calls it by its ancient name.
