There are many striking rock formations in the Peace River valley, jutting out from the soft sandy soil and spotted with orange lichen, but there is one with a name, “The Keeper of the Peace”, that has carried a legend for at least 140 years. No one knows exactly which rock it is, only its relative location near Ft. St. John, but the legend remains.
In 1873, Sir William Francis Butler (a legend in his own right) heard and recorded the story of Chimeroo, The Keeper of the Peace, and the rock named for him. You can find the passage here, along with pictures of two possible Chimeroo rock formations.
