The highway passes through Frank's Slide.
Near Crowsnest Pass.
Frank's Slide is an amazing sight to behold. Some time during the early part of the 19th century, a mountainside collapsed and buried the town below, killing at least 70 people. The massive boulders are still visible on the valley floor, where a highway now carves through the field of rocky debris. It's worth the stop to feel the enormity of that once catastrophic event.
I'm about half way home by the time I reach Crowsnest Pass, and I stop to photograph the mountains. It's one last chance to show off the magnificent beauty of western Canada.
More to come...
