Visit narrative:
Rocky picked us up from the Boundary Cabin where we are staying and took us to the Highwood day base, where we got organized, harnessed Vladka in, etc. From the day base we flew ~1.5miles east. The mountain had two clearly visible knobs, a higher and a lower. Our station was from the higher knob. We only have 1 historic image from this station, but we took a pano.

Visit narrative:
We squeezed this station in as we moved up from the Livingstone Fire base to the Elbow Fire base. Travis picked us up at the "Highwood House" gas station on the corner of highway 40 and the Trunk Road. A short (2 minute/5 kilometer) flight took us to the top of Mount Mann. Upon closer inspection we found that the summit was covered with trees, therefore we didn't land and took this image from the air. Travis held us 25 meters, slightly east of the highest point on the summit. Because this station was taken from the air we did not collect weather or GPS data or location images.
Weather narrative:
Cumulus congestus, moderate winds (approximately 20 kilometers per hour gusts). Large cumulo nimbus to the north. Approximately 20ÂșC and not noticeably humid or dry.
