Reunion at Diamond Head Chalet, September, 2007 - Photos
On September 15, 2007, descendants of Ottar Brandvold and Joan Mathews met at Elfin Lakes, Garibaldi Provincial Park to remember and celebrate the building and operation of Diamond Head Chalet by Joan Mathews, Ottar Brandvold, and Emil Brandvold. Most of those attending the reunion hiked into Elfin Lakes along the road first built by Ottar and Emil. Thanks to BC Parks, some made the trip by helicopter. During the morning, the landing site beside Elfin Lakes was covered by thick fog. Fortunately, the skies cleared in the early afternoon allowing the helicopter flight to take place. For the first time, all the descendants of Joan Mathews and Ottar Brandvold were together at Elfin Lakes.
