We can all think of the valleys, with Operation: Zero Tolerance and Operation: Wide Awake, etc.
Harder to think of the peaks. Here are some off the top of my head:
1. X-Factor Vol.1 #26 - X-Factor, consisting of the original X-Men had just saved New York from Apoclaypse and his Horsemen. New York held a street parade for the mutants, celebrating them as heroes.
2. Uncanny X-Men #228 - the X-Men were fighting the Adversary in Dallas at Forge's tower. Two reporters were swept up in the commotion, and were reporting and filming the entire battle. The X-Men were being seen as the heroes they truly were, and this was being telecast live. The X-Men were seen as heroes as they gave up their lives to stop the Adversary, live on tv, and they were revered as heroes for a short time after that.
3. Uncanny X-Men - whatever number issue #1 of the X-Cutioner's song crossover is - Professor Xavier addresses a crowd of humans at a concert in Central Park, advocating the rights of mutants. He is gunned down by Stryfe posing as Cable, but he was getting his message across. I am sure this was earning him some good will for mutants.
Those are three exampls off the top of my head. I am sure there are more.
