Other Information

This peak, or possibly Mount Glenn, is noted as Mount Sabine on the Palliser Expeditionís 1865 map and on George Dawson's 1886 map. The peak currently known as Mount Sabine is located immediately north of the point where the Kootenay River enters the major valley just south of Columbia Lake. Thomas Blakiston referred to the peak now known as The Steeples but also referred to it as Mount Sabine. It appears that John Palliser chose to name "The Steeples" and transferred the name "Mount Sabine" to a point northeast of where the Kootenay River turns into the major valley south of Columbia Lake.
