“Named after Project Man High, bringing man the first view of Earth from space in the 1950's.”

Man High Hill and Portsmouth Mine Lake are full of pre-NASA history. Welded into his capsule, the first man to see the curvature of the Earth was launched for a 32 hour flight here. Details of this feat can be found at the historical marker near the paved trail and HWY 6 parking.
