For many who travel by road in and around Kamloops, the Coquihalla is a name that can create anxiety (because of driving conditions) or frustration (because of closures).
It's unlikely it's ever been described as calming, but some videos uploaded to YouTube make it look rather pleasant.
If nothing else they provide an interesting and rarely seen view of the highway.
Uploaded by the account Curious soul, the trio of videos capture a wintery scene along a clear stretch of road.
From the height of the drone, the notorious highway looks like a ribbon cutting through epic mountains as the sun sets.
Remember the natural beauty that surrounds the Coq the next time you're stuck on there for hours.
