Uniformity of Tragedy

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

Franks Slide ..The Frank’s Slide, a rockslide that buried part of mining town of Frank, Alberta, Canada, at 4:10 a.m. on April 29, 1903.

Nearly 110 million tonnes of limestone rock slid down from Turtle Mountain covering the entire area in debris within 2 minutes. The eastern edge of Frank, the coal mine and Pacific rail line disappeared. It was one of the worst landslide of Canada.

The uniform color of the rocks is a reminder of nature’s fury. We can only empathize.
