Beartooth Pass! Woo! Highest place I've ever driven. Also, I really like
the name and the place.

Seems like this might be something that needs to be regularly adjusted, by
setting the affected section to access=no. If there's multiple segments,
gotta wonder if this would be an acceptable misuse of a relation to make it
easier to maintain (just to be able to pull down all the related objects
subject to winter closure on that road at once).
