Description
An unsolved series of murders and disappearances of young women in the vicinity of Highway 16 has earned the route the nickname the "Highway of Tears". Since 1969, at least 32 women, many of them aboriginal, have been killed or suspiciously disappeared along the 800-kilometre (500-mile) section of highway between Prince George and Prince Rupert British Columbia.

Some have claimed ghostly images have appeared at night while traveling this highway,hands outstretched as if asking for help.
Some have claimed that there radios where interrupted at night with transmission like voices but they could not understand what was being said.

This is the Highway Of Tears, the highway of fear,the highway of terror...

Man, oh man!
This was terrific Dave! Now, I know this might surprise you, but I'm very update to date on the occult and supernatural (just love reading about that stuff!) and have heard about this stretch of road. You really made it come alive here (and I'll have to listen on my good headphones when I get back from work--this deserves a "deluxe listen"!) Thanks again--and keep up the fine output!

What an amazing tribute to those women
I hadn't heard about the spooky happenings but it would be good if their spirits got together and eliminated the danger. Great piece Dave. Thanks.

Or highway of fears - you captured very well this scary ambiance of a ghost road.
I wish you a very happy birthday with a lot of bright stars illuminating the holy darkness of the fall.

Great work Dave. The ghostly voices are wonderfully disturbing and work so well with the beautiful musical elements here.

Hadn't heard
of this place or the story behind it, but how sad really. I think you depicted this with a lot of sensitivity Dave..... wonderful how you created that lost and desolate atmosphere with sound, regards M

Great capture
Tension, fear, pathos, tragedy. It's all here, mingled in with a few pure and beautiful tones. Very well done, sir.
