There are two springs at the south end of the lake, the “Potash” which has a temperature of 120 degrees and the “Sulphur” with a temperature of 150 degrees., the public trek to these healing waters has gone on since 1886 when St. Alice Hotel was build. The Indians of course had always known about the springs and they knew also of the “Keekwully Tybee” who sent up the medicine waters all hot from below. We are told they believed the springs of boiling water – Waum Chuck – were of supernatural origin, and regarded the hot water in the lake with reverence and awe and that those who drank the water were given some mystic powers of endurance over their fellow men. According to some of the stories they believe the waters will boil as long as there is sickness in the land. The People of the Harrison by Daphne Sleigh
