Up Settler's Road is an area of Crown Land which is home to mining, forestry, and recreation industries. It is bounded by Banff, kootenay and Assiniboine Parks. Mt. Eon perfectly illustrates the irony of this situation with its glaciated north facing slopes in Assiniboine Park and its southern flanks overlooking a magnesium mine and logging operations. This mountain has a complex history—it was the site of the climbing death of Dr. Stone, President of Purdue University in 1921, and subsequent stranding of his young wife, Margaret Stone, on the mountain, without food or water, for a week before her rescue. Her ordeal has been commemorated by an epic poem by Jon Whyte, The Agony of Mrs. Stone, and an opera of the same name, based on Jon's poem, by Sebastian Hutchings.
