On a recent trip to the Okanagan to visit family, I made a last minute switch from port to starboard and was rewarded with dramatic raking light across the southern Coast Range, and a golden glow on the Port Mann Bridge as the cables caught the last light of day. I was hoping to pass a little closer to the downtown core, but Surrey was looking pretty good that evening. Maybe next time.
Even when confounded by imperfect conditions or the inevitable distorted window, the view outside is (almost always) better than the in-flight entertainment.
