It’s funny what one will run across while looking for something else.  I didn’t even know we had these photos!  The year was 1984, and Amalie and I were on a Tauck tour in Canada.  The trip included Lake Louise, rafting on a river, and heli-hiking in the Canadian Rockies.  I wish I had more of the heli-hiking, but I do have these.
My, we were young!

Not sure where this was taken.

This may have been near Lake Louise.

Probably at the heli-hiking lodge.

What is neat about heli-hiking is that the chopper takes us up a mountain, and then we get to hike around; not up and down.

It was a chilly ride, and they had hot chocolate waiting for us when we landed.

Punny -

Show me a piano falling down a mine shaft, and I'll show you a flat minor.
When a clock is hungry, it goes back four seconds.
The man who fell into an upholstery machine is fully recovered.
A grenade thrown into a kitchen in France would result in Linoleum Blownapart.
