Photo: Mistaya River Rocky Mountain Winter Scenery

The Mistaya River is flowing freely despite the ice and snow lying on the ground all along its banks. This area of the Rocky Mountain Parks is known for its stunning year round scenery from the cold of winter to the warmth of summer.

The flowing Mistaya River makes its way through the ice and snow covered banks of the Mistaya Canyon while rolling dark clouds move across the sky. This area of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site is considered to be protected land, so it is perfect for a visit any time of the year. The winter scenery pictured here shows just how beautiful this area of Banff National Park is, and it is easy to see why this region is so popular for those wanting to take in the great outdoors.

Banff National Park is known for its snowfall, so if you come for a visit in the winter you are almost guaranteed to see some fresh ice and snow with a backdrop of classic mountain scenery. ... continue below the picture...

... The temperature can drop to the minus thirties during the height of the winter season, but it usually stays around minus fifteen and if you wrap up warm and are prepared, that can be a good time to do some snowshoeing or cross country skiing.

Although fresh snow and ice has formed in this view seen here, it is not that cold yet as the river is still flowing freely and making its way though the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Through the clouds beyond the trees, you can just make out Mount Sarbach, which stands at an impressive 3155 metres, or 10351 feet.
