The power of Mother Nature is a sight to behold.
Avalanche control forced the closure of Highway 1 near Revelstoke for much of Thursday as well as today and the resulting footage is breathtaking.
Posted by the BC Transportation Twitter account, the video shows a deliberately set avalanche to reduce the snow load in the Lanark snowshed area.
