Five HighwayCam Views That Will Leave You Feeling Inspired

This winter you’ve been using our HighwayCams to check road conditions before you venture out.

But did you know that those same cameras can help you explore the beauty of our province?

Here are five HighwayCam views that deserve another look:

Lions Gate Bridge

The Lions Gate Bridge is a gateway to Vancouver, one of most desirable places to live in the world. This view could symbolize the appeal of living in a modern metropolis surrounded by awe-inspiring nature. Pedestrians, cars, traffic lights, and the bridge converge on the horizon framed by large, magnificent trees.

Highway 4 at Sutton Pass

This view is typical of the winding and undulating route travellers take to reach the coastal natural wonders in and around Tofino and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island. Cutting through the middle of the frame, the road directs the eye to Pogo Mountain in the background.

Highway 1 at Hoffman’s Bluff

The splendour of Hoffman’s Bluff and the mountainous backdrop complement references to travel by road, rail, and river in this view along the Trans Canada Highway east of Kamloops.

Highway 1 at Field

Road, tree-line, mountains, and sky are subtlety layered in this expansive view along the Trans Canada Highway in Yoho National Park named for a Cree expression for awe and wonder.

Highway 37 at the B.C.-Yukon border

What lies beyond borders and boundaries can be the stuff of dreams. This serene view looking north at the B.C.-Yukon border stirs in us a passion for exploration and discovery.

    I’ve always been partial to the McDonald summit west of Little Fort.

    Those are wonderful pics but…..why are there not web cams on the Connector from Kelowna to Merrit? And if there are where do I find them.
