The way the snowplows have artfully and skillfully carved around the snowpoles and signs...
Sometimes the snowplow drivers have been smartasses though.
In Lee Vining the icicle crop is just grand, thank you.
And at the bottom of Conway Summit, some crazed skiers have been trying to die by skiing a sheer rock field that terminates ON the highway. Not just a few times, either, as you can tell by the tracks. These folks made a day of it.
At the top is 395, which curves and drops a few thousand feet in very short order.
At the bottom is the highway again, very suddenly.
At any rate, driving 395 in winter is a real maybe/maybe not kinda thing, depending on the weather and your nerves.
