CROWSNEST HIGHWAY
We were hurrying along this route on our way
home in Seattle from a trip to Edmonton, but the
many sights along this highway made us stop often
to take pictures.  There are many attractions to
attract you to Highway 3, from east to west:

Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump
A terrific interpretive center that explains the lives
and hunting methods of the Plains Indians before
they acquired horses and guns.

Frank Slide
70 peope perished here when a huge chunk of
Turtle Mountain broke off and buried a portion of
the town of Frank in 1903. It remains an awesome,
tragic sight today

Crowsnest Mountain
This striking mountain stands out by itself with an
unusual layer cake shape. An extremely
photogenic mountain.
