      MISTAYA LAKE


72 Kilometers from Banff, this picture postcard
jewel is located right off the highway! Beautifully backdropped by the Rockies it
shimmers with blue and green hues that make the Alberta Rockies lakes famous.


MISTAYA LAKE

The Mistaya River originates at pretty PEYTO LAKE which is a glacial lake of striking baby blue colors. The Mistaya River flows north-west, receiving the waters of creeks such as Delta, Silverhorn, Cirque, Noyes, ChephrenTotem, Epaulette, Bison, Kaufmann and Sarback. A series of elongated lakes are formed along the river including Mistaya Lake and Waterfowl Lakes.

Later the Mistaya River merges into the North Saskatchewan River which flows East through Edmonton and Saskatoon and ends up in Hudsons Bay and the North Atlantic Ocean. That is quite a journey.


THE ICEFIELDS PARKWAY

The main highway between Jasper and Banff is called the ICEFIELDS PARKWAY because of the many glaciers, hugging the mountains, that can be seen as you drive. It is a stunning drive with many lakes that are incredible colors of blue and green, seen nowhere else. Drive by a triple continental divide and learn about "Rock Flour". This is possibly the most unforgettable mountain trip you will ever make. Come see it for yourself!!
