Narrative:
autumn sightseeing flt,low pass looking for deer. We were not looking for deer. We flew into a box canyon and did not have the power to clear the ridge at the end of the canyon. We then tried a 180 turn and ended up at tree tops. I believe it was the left wing hit the top of a tree and down we went.
