Oil Boy is all pumped up... 20080511_9440
My second hike into Day Canyon started at the top. I parked at the site of what appeared to be an oil well. I took this picture at arm's length without the help of my trusty photographic aide, Joe Tripod. When editing the image I lightened the lenses of my sunglasses for fun.
Hike in upper Day Canyon in May 20008.
UPDATE IN 2017:
In 2014 I returned to this spot and was shocked to see it had been reclaimed and was UGLY AS HELL. At least this industrial environment had an interesting character; the reclaimed site was bland to the point of being repulsive. Google Earth's historical imagery shows that all traces of the oil drilling had been removed by mid-2011.
