You also have to take into consideration that a lot of gold hunters dug a lot of mines in Alaska, some them went way out into the wilderness to find
the mother load.
However the lack of debris makes me wonder, there could be a lot of explanations for these openings, some have mentioned volcanic steam vents, a route
for water coming from the melt higher up the Mountains, there are tubes near Flagstaff long tubes caused by ancient lava flows caused by MT
Humphrey's which last erupted about 900 years ago if my memory serves me right.
There are tubes all over the AZ desert up on the high plains some of them have what seems to be steam coming out of them, which you can only see if
you see them early on a winters day, just hotter air coming from the miles and miles of fault cracks all over the area, I cant really see Alaska being
much different being a highly active Geological and seismic area.
That is not to say that they cant be modern or the signs of something more sinister underground in that area, you could check for seismic activity on
the USGS website, the locations can be listed to within meters, so if blasting was involved there would be unimportant readings listed somewhere,
unimportant to some anyhow.
Without knowing the right angle of the entrances it's hard to judge anything really, but myself personally, and as a Geologist, I find them very
interesting, but there could be many reasonable explanations.
And the dirt trail does look like water has been flowing there more than a walking trail, there isn't enough disturbance IMO for it to be Human
activity, not on the slope anyhow, Humans are clumsy in any environment, also there is no litter lol, a sure sign of human activity.
My guess is a water cutting from melt water.
Just an opinion. S&F I wanna know too.
