Pukeashun Mountain
This peak is #55 in Prominence List for British Columbia .The highest summit of the Adams Plateau, which is the gentle but hilly range between Adams Lake and the Seymour Arm of Shuswap Lake.

The terrain around this prominent mountain is mostly bare rock. There is no glacier, and no alpine lakes above treeline.

This is an easy hike up to the top, and so it was probably first ascended in pre-european times.

Name Notes: Pukeashun (pronounced Pooh-kee-shuhn) means "White rock" in Shuswap.
