Good for Jeff! Haven't seen much of him around here lately. And look at those flowing locks!
I knew that they had oil activity up that way a hundred years ago but I didn't even think that there might be something to see. We didn't go beyond this photo spot (at the foot of Upper Kintla) as it was over 9 miles just to get here. That oil activity was a main purpose that they built the Inside North Fork Road. Retroactively I choose to believe anything would be buried under thick brush.Good for Jeff! Haven't seen much of him around here lately. And look at those flowing locks!
Did you guys take a look at the old relics from the oil drilling at the upper head of (lower) Kintla? I've wanted to go see that for a while but didn't have time to go that far when I went to Kintla a few years ago.
Haha. I imagine most of it is buried in the brush, but there's actually an old boiler thing that's in the shallow water at the head of the lower lake. It's right near the backcountry campsite, from what I understand.I knew that they had oil activity up that way a hundred years ago but I didn't even think that there might be something to see.

Love it! Great work. And honestly hardly remember most of the places in those shots from when I went several years ago. I need to go back.We finally graduated from Canyon class 1.0 - at least that’s what it felt like yesterday Super happy, nice cool day in Sheiks.

Looking back up, at least two routes through and lets just say we didn’t go back the way we came in, ha!
