The Grapevine- I-5 from Bakersfield to Santa Clarita:  Large mountains surround you on both sides which tend to catch on fire in the summer and get covered in snow in winter. Whether it is a fire, ice on the road, or a fatal car accident, the grapevine is a dangerous place to be, and the lack of exits make getting stranded in your car very likely when something does go wrong. The best part is a steep drop off grade down into the San Joaquin Valley at the end as the grand finale.
