When travelling through the Crows Nest Pass District, stop in at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre.

Just to see the site itself is amazing. The whole side of a mountain, Turtle Mountain, collapsed one morning, taking out the town of Frank with it.

It is pricey to go inside, and I actually haven't been in the centre itself, but I've walked around the grounds. Its awe inspiring, to think what mother nature can do in an instant, and how ill prepared we are for such forces!

Directions: Located 1.5 km off Highway #3 in the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass
