At a Glance

The wretched Trans-Canada (Hwy 1) drone through the Fraser Valley from Vancouver to Hope is a true test of your soul. Perhaps thatís why itís home to B.C.ís Bible Belt. But north of Hope, where the Fraser Canyon begins, there is one heavenly section which canít be converted to a straight path by even the most devout Minister of Highways. The terrain beyond Yale is so steep and rough in some places there was no option but to blast tunnels through long sections of solid rock to force a road through. And what a road it is. Smooth, wide pavement complements the sweeping, perfectly engineered curves. And the scale of the surrounding scenery at times defies description. If you get lucky and hit a lull in the often-heavy traffic and donít mind flirting with the omnipresent speed tax collectors, this road can be truly divine.
