My Introduction To Fire Towers
After a week of on the job training at Ansel Tower I made my way to my new summer home, Mayberne Fire Tower. Mayberne is located North of Edson, on the ridge west of Silver Summit Ski Hill. It is a very picturesque site with a stunning view of the divide in the Rockies. I spent four years there and have enjoyed every minute of it ever since.

The Martin Mars

The Marten Mars was brought into Slave Lake from B.C. for a few days.  It is the worlds largest water bomber and is only capable of landing on water.  It has a wing span of two hundred feet and can fly for eight hours straight. The Mars can scoop up to six thousand gallons of water, which is equal to five Ducks!(CL215's)
