Tlie original Fort Whoop-Up site is on the first country road heading west after Kenyon Field Airport, south of the city. A lookout enables one to see the original site of the Fort Whoop- Up trading post and overlook the coulees where the wagon tracks of the early traders and pioneers are still visible.

It is 189 feet high and pro- vides water to irrigate acres of land in Southern Alber- ta and holds acre fcet of water in a man-made lake 11 miles long. Huge linvstone IbouSdera strewn across the floor of the Crowsnest Pass mark the site of the slide at Frank, Alta., on April 29, 1903. The slide was caused by- a huge portion of Turtle Mountain crashing down on the town site and killing at least 70 persons. The Crowsnest Pass area, which cuts through the foothills of the Canadian Rockies from Luiidbreck in southwestern Al- to Cranbrook in south- western British Columbia, can be reached by turning west at Fort Macleod and travelling along Highway 3. The Mormon Temple at Card- ston was built between 1913 and 1921. This temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Lattery-day Saints was constructed as a memorial to early Mormon set- tlers in Canada. It is the only one of its kind in Canada and one of the 13 Mormon temples in the world. Writing on Stons provincial park southeast of Milk River, against the Canada and united Slates border, features weird sandstone formations formed by water and wind erosion.
