Waterton Lakes National Park Off The Beaten Path: 14 reviews and 19 photos
Coleman, and the Crowsnest Pass are little less than a 1 hour drive north of Waterton National Park. In "The Pass" you will find the town of Frank and the "Frank slide interpretive centre."
On April 29, 1903, at 4:10 a.m., Turtle Mountain collapsed, resulting in the greatest landslide in North American history. In 100 seconds: at least 76 people were buried alive under tons of massive limestone boulders; three-quarters of the homes in Frank were crushed; over a mile of the Canadian Pacific Railroad was completely destroyed; and a river became a lake
The centre is open from 9am until 6pm, costs 6.50 per person and offers a viewing platform, audio-visual presentations, guided walks, slide shows, and demonstrations.
