This stone cairn has been built on the banks of the Mistaya River and is still standing after winter has settled over the region. Mistaya Canyon is located off the Icefields Parkway in Banff National Park, which is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. This area is known for its harsh but beautiful winters and the scenery seen here provides a small example of the expected conditions. It is a popular location all year-round and is a protected area as it is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage site.

... Sarbach can be seen extending into the sky; standing at 3155 metres or 10351 feet, it is not easily missed and is a popular climbing destination for the experienced adventure seeker. If you are looking for a calmer adventure then the Mistaya River and Canyon in the heart of the Rocky Mountains is a perfect place to strap on some snowshoes and walk amongst the snow-covered trees and scenery which looks more like a winter wonderland. You might even discover a stone cairn along the way.
