My favourite stretch of highway is closed. Number 83 highway, between Russell and Roblin. It’s always been a squirrely drive. Huge holes and what not. I know this stretch, where it drops and turns into the other side of the valley. One of the most amazing views, but clearly a hazardous road.

There were flags warning you about huge chunks of road caving into itself, where sad attempts were made to fill the gaps with gravel. That started several years ago. It looks like where the flags were is where the slide happened. It was just a matter of time.
