I know that interstate very well having lived out there for over 20 years. Between the hills, turns and improperly banked turns, plus some unpredictable
winds coming up the valley, it can be a tricky stretch to travel.

In the Pincher Creek area of Alberta the winds can and do blow even semis on their side, I had a canoe ripped off the roof of my Camaro there, broke the tie straps with one lane changing gust.

Is that a minivan facing the wrong way in the one picture?

Could be a big trailer and a small vehicle. Not a very safe combo!
