Caption: Frank Slide. Satellite image of the southern Rocky Mountains, Alberta, Canada. North is at top. Vegetation is green, bare ground is pink. The two wide pink areas at upper centre are Frank Slide, a feature left by the collapse of the east face of Turtle Mountain on 29th April 1903. During the massive landslide 74 million tonnes of rock fell and came to cover 3 square kilometres of the valley floor. Over 70 people in the town of Frank below the mountain were killed. Image taken by Landsat 7.
