Nicola Valley, British Columbia CM11-03

Description : The Nicola Valley is served by the Coquihalla Highway (Highway 5) that travels from Hope north to Kamloops via Merritt. The Coquihalla Highway climbs through the Great Bear Snow Shed, crests the summit of Coquihalla Pass (elevation 4,068 feet/1240 m), then crosses the top of the Thompson Plateau, with side roads leading off into rolling countryside speckled with fishing lakes. The Coquihalla Highway was the only toll road in BC, until the toll was eliminated in September 2008 after recovery of the construction cost of the Hope-to-Merritt section.
