Leitch Collieries, Crowsnest Pass

Located in Alberta's Rocky Mountains, Leitch Collieries is an abandoned coal mine and processing plant. The location is now a provincial historic site, and the remaining buildings have been stabilized and preserved as ruins. The mine was developed between 1905-1906, but it ceased operation by 1915. Today it's a cool place to explore. The area is lined with walking paths, and it's just a short stop before you reach Frank Slide.
