    Fake. No way does the State of Iowa DOT have equipment that could cut a path that high.

    My bet is real picture, but not of the location mentioned.

    Obviously not in Iowa, but I don't know about fake. Look at the side of the road the car is driving on.

    Re: Real or Fake Picture...?

    1. Look at the bottom third, some really bad photoshopping going on
    2. Why is the car on the left side?

    Why would you make a thread with this title with no pictures of boobs?

    Already been said, but the picture is real. It's not in Iowa though.

    The snow is cut perfect along the edges. FAKE!

    Re: Real or Fake Picture...?

    Fake. No way snow would maintain sharp edges that high, and the highway itself wouldn't be entirely clear without sunlight or some other melting and runoff--which would affect those "walls".

    So why would that one car on the bottom be in the left lane going around a curve?


    What if you hit the side with your mirror? The whole wall of snow would collapse.

    Our tour guide in Reno mentioned that the road to Lake Tahoe got about 16' of snow piled up along it during the winters, as they snow blow the pass rather than plow

    But it wouldn't be that perfectly cut.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Don't know how it was done exactly, but I'm still betting on real.

    Dont know about that... the snow at the bottom might be pretty solid under that much pressure.
