Day One: Stay in Pincher Creek, then head out from there to two sites today if you’re feeling ambitious.
Frank Slide Interpretive Centre in Crowsnest Pass is our first stop.
We’ve already been here twice but I would go again. The combination of storytelling, geology and science is quite fascinating as you explore this historic landslide that destroyed the town of Frank. We visited when our girl was two and when she was eight and both times there was plenty to do, see and learn.
