Golden Hinde

GOLDEN HINDE (el 2,200 m), the highest mountain on VANCOUVER ISLAND, is in STRATHCONA PROVINCIAL PARK near the centre of the island. It was known as Rooster's Comb until 1939, when it was renamed for the ship in which Francis DRAKE circumnavigated the globe. Golden Hinde was first scaled in 1914 by the survey photographer W.R. Kent and his young guide Einer Anderson. See also PARKS, PROVINCIAL.
