Stop along the way at the Earthquake Lake Visitor Center. Learn about the earthquake that occurred in 1959 that caused an enormous landslide, the damming of the Madison River that created Quake Lake and the re-channeling of the riverbed through the Madison River Canyon. 80 millions tons of rock and debris slide off the mountain side and into the narrow canyon. The site features an interpretive center with panoramic views of the quake site.
