Prince of Wales
Hotel offers views
of Waterton
Lakes National
Park.

Waterton Lakes National Park

Waterton Lakes National Park, accessible
by AB 6 from either Cardston or Pincher
Creek. Alberta, and the adjoining (U.S.)
Glacier National Park, together constitute breathtaking Waterton-Glacier
International Peace Park. The oftenoverlooked Canadian site has a variety of
attractive group accommodations available
in the village of Waterton Park, which is
unique in that wild animals (white-tailed
and mule deer, mountain goats, bighorn
sheep) frequently wander through town.
Scenic cruises along the shoreline of beautiful Upper Waterton Lake and water shuttles
that cross the lake to hiking trails depart
from here; a variety of ranger-led programs
and activities are also available. Please note
that a major wildfire in 2017 has restricted
a number of park activities, and restorative
work is still in process. Unfortunately, the
outstanding Red Rock Parkway to Red Rock
Canyon, a major attraction for groups, is still
closed, as are a number of hiking trails, but
all will eventually be reopened. www.pc.gc.

DESTINATIONS

/SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2019

Frank Slide
Interpretive
Centre.

Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump
Interpretive Centre

Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump
Interpretive Centre, 18 kilometers north
and west of Fort Macleod, Alberta, is
reached via secondary, but paved, Highway
785. This fascinating UNESCO World
Heritage Site is one of the best-preserved
buffalo jumps in North America and
features an excellent, seven-story center
that interprets the historic cultural site. For
more than 6,000 years, hunts conducted
by Blackfoot peoples stampeded herds
of buffalo over the cliffs to hard landings
below that broke the animals' legs before
they were finished off and butchered by
warriors armed with clubs, spears, and
knives fashioned from the creatures' bones.

Frank Slide Interpretive Centre

Frank Slide Interpretive Centre is located
just off AB 3 at Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. On
April 29, 1903, the geological feature Turtle
Mountain, made unstable by coal-mining
tunnels that honeycombed the mountain,

caused Canada's deadliest rockslide,
resulting in more than 90 deaths. Some
44 million cubic meters of rock-mostly
limestone-weighing about 110 million
metric tons raced down the mountainside
at speeds of up to 120 kilometers per hour
for almost two minutes, burying three
square kilometers of the valley floor to an
average depth of 14 meters and as much as
45 meters. The site's staff has calculated
that a wall one meter wide and six meters
high could be built from Victoria, British
Columbia, to Halifax, Nova Scotia, with the
rock that fell during the Frank Slide. Today,
groups will find a visitor center that offers
programs and exhibits explaining the slide,
as well as a self-guided 1.5-kilometer hiking
trail through the rocks. www.frankslide.ca

Fort Steele Heritage Town

Fort Steele Heritage Town, 16 kilometers
northwest of Cranbrook, British Columbia,
is just off BC 93 and 95. In 1888, the village
of Galbraith's Ferry was renamed Fort
Steele in honor of North West Mounted
Police Superintendent Samuel Steele, who

BOB HOELSCHER.
