It is, but this not them. These are less of a tumble and much less remote, but still in the same Canadian province.
I really just need the name of the river, or the mountain/range above.

Alright now the game is more interesting. Waterfalls and whitewater is right up my alley.

Bow falls? Would love to kayak them someday!

Yes, Bow Falls are just ahead downstream, Mt Rundle above. I like looking at whitewater :). Apparently they have been kayaked but:
"The rapids are typically considered very dangerous due to many unseen jagged rocks underneath it."
"A section of the falls has been dubbed "the coffin" by paddlers because of the likelihood of being trapped underwater by the vicious spinning water."

You would definitely have an audience of tourists and townsfolk at the base of the falls.

That's true. I'm looking at some old photos.

I'm looking north towards a big fiord. Just name the town in view.

Seeing as you are the only one who commented NNW, you've got the best guess. Your turn!

The only international shots I have are slides, and it would take forever to dig something out, scan it, etc.
Maybe just open it up to whoever has something to show.

None of them. That little building is on TV, it’s Doc Martin’s surgery.

Yes it’s Port Isaac. In Doc Martin it’s called Port Wenn.

I love what they have done with the place, shows you what a lick of paint and a bit of elbow grease can do. Is that you in the first picture Greg wearing the pith helmet?
I've no idea where this is.

seems I've made it too hard.

I'll accept the name of the town in Thailand I'm wandering around - those Burmese invaders really knew how to pillage.
