Visit narrative:
Second station of the afternoon! Weather continuing to cooperate despite a gloomy forecast. Slightly muggy and exposed walk up to the location on a faint trail. Station was situated close to the cliff edge. Eric casually set up the tripod (low) despite proximity to certain death. The first picture was directly obscured by a Doug Fir – alternates will be required. Really interesting view of the valley floor – many changes since previous repeat, but also certain features unchanged. Station images to the west could not be repeated due to tree growth obscuring the view.

Visit narrative:
After completing work in Glacier National Park a day early, Stuart, Eric and I found ourselves with an extra day in Jasper while we waited for original scans for the Willmore to arrive. We spent the night at the Pallisados center just north of Jasper. Rather than avail ourselves of civilization (the local Chaba theater was playing both "The Smurfs" and Justin Timberlake in "Friends with Benefits") we've headed for the hills. Specifically, we've decided to re re-peat the Powerhouse Cliff station. First repeat as one of the original RMRPP photos by Eric Higgs and Jeanine Rheuntulla in 1996. To access this station we walked around the north end of the fenced powerhouse compound, crossed the tracks (carefully), hiked up the slope along a deer trail, and walked south until we reached the station (plus some useful foreground!). Stuart os now very, very carefully lining up photos after making the risky claim that he could improve on Eric and Jeanine's repeats. Oh dear. We're all excited about Mountain Legacy's first full "third view" of what Eric thinks may have been the first station ever repeated by MLP... (and the data structure issues this raises).
