Mistaya Canyon

     Just south of the Saskatchewan River Crossing on the Icefields Parkway is a short trail leading to Mistaya Canyon. The Mistaya River has eroded the rock into a narrow gorge that makes for interesting photography.
     Mistaya is a Stoney word for 'grizzly bear' and according to one guide book, the Stoney natives would cross here on their hunting trips on trees that they had fallen rather than cross the river itself.
