Absolutely you should take the old highway (5a) from Kamloops to Merritt, then Coldwater Road as far as you can before joining the main highway. Far more scenic and much less climbing. As a rule, anytime there's a smaller road that parallels the highway, often on the other side of a river or lake, it's worth taking. Beware the ones that take you away from the highway though, sometimes they're great, sometimes they take you up 1000 meters and straight back down.
