Greetings from Whitehorse Mountain

'Greetings from Whitehorse Mountain' oil pastel;  Kathleen Faulkner

The mountain we now call "Whitehorse" was originally called So-Bahli-Ahli, (The Beautiful Woman From the east) by the Stillaguamish.  

One day,  a long time later, a pioneer lost his white horse.  His neighbor, looking up at the mountain, saw a patch of snow that looked like a white horse and said jokingly, 'There it is, up there."  

From then on this mountain was called Whitehorse.
