Dunn Peak offers one of the most astonishing views imaginable, and surely is unique in British Columbia. North lies Trophy Mtn and Raft Mtn; the bigger peaks of the Premier Range are hidden behind.
The Monashees stretch across the horizon from NE thru E to SE.
ENE is a large, distant, half-snowy peak: Mt Clemenceau, about 170km away in the Rockies.
Just N of E is another very distant peak, a rocky pryamid: Mt Sir Sanford, 150km off in the N'ern Selkirks.
The Interior Plateau fills most fo the rest of the panorama, but far, far away in the SW in very clear conditions one can make out a high range at the fringes of the Coast Mountains, perhaps the Marble Range, or the Shulaps.
