Rainbow Range

Rainbow Range (83E)

The Rainbow Range lies to the north of the upper Fraser River and south of Respendent Creek.

James McEvoy named the range in 1898, writing, "Viewed from a distance, these mountains have a gorgeous appearance of red and yellow and hence the name given."

Following his 1911 visit to the area, Arthur Wheeler wrote of the range, "The mountains are formed of rocks showing brilliant colours of crimson, red, and yellow, and these, mingled with the blues and greens of Nature's everyday garb, present from distant points a highly prismatic effect that has given rise to the name."
