Hi, Vancouver 2010: The place of alpine skiing is called Whistler Creekside. On the map of Canada I have found a number of places called "something Creek". Certainly I know the word creek as a small river or brook. However I checked it in my dictionary and it has other meanings too, not to my big surprise. I am just ruminating over that. Its other meanings are - gulsh, canyon, gorge, notch. What do Canadian imagine when hearing Cache Creek or Scotch Creek, Fox Creek? Do they think of a brook or instead a canyon? (or both at the same time) Sorry for this strange question. Thanks.
