Fast flowing river descends from mountains and through woodland before crashing through a curvy and rocky canyon.

Mistaya Canyon is another popular spectacle for visitors in Jasper National Park. The canyon is located not far from the Icefields Parkway, so many tourists take the time to visit and see its distinctive curvy canyon walls.

The canyon was busy with other people when I visited during my trip. I therefore needed to be patient before I could take the shot I wanted. I took the time to enjoy the views and the sounds of the water crashing the canyon. Eventually most of the other visitors left and I was able to capture this shot.
