Any one in Alaska want to climb up there next year and look at this thing?


Well i'm here up in NW Alaska so it might be one of the things i will look into sometimes. =P

i copied and pasted the cords and it takes me to Turkey, Can someone help? I want to see this, I have a cousin in Anchorage, I might just see what she or her husband can find out.

I also have a red square near Anchorage, I was just on Google Earth a couple of days ago and it was not there. I did have this earthquake thing stationed in Alaska put on my GE so I could see new earthquakes. I don't know if that is the reason the red square is there or not. I still cannot get to the right cords.

Interesting. I can't find a single airplane photo of that area. Just low-res satellite work. I can't find who owns it either. You've got my curiosity piqued.

The DOT just resurfaced the Glen past Sheep Mountain Lodge last year. Part of all those 3R projects involves drainage improvements and, thanks to changed regulations over the past few years, drainage improvements involves identification of anadramous streams. These streams are federally protected, require design level permitting by ACOE, and then must be fitted with a culvert classified as a Fish Passage. 99.9% of any anomalies you see on a stream (even a tiny one) in Alaska near a roadway is somehow connected to fish sampling. They're looking for fry, and considering that area I'd guess they were looking for Chum salmon fry, that would indicate migratory fish make it that far up Gypsum Creek, thus mandating a fish passage culvert rather than a smaller, cheaper CMP.

As for page one of this thread... I saw the word "remote" thrown about just a bit too much. Sheep Mountain is not remote, nor is Gypsum Creek. At least not by rural standards.

Your friend "called the State of Alaska" okay.


The woman seemed, "short" on the phone. Have you considered or entertained the idea that the person he contacted had no clue, and is used to dealing with crazy all the time?

Public servants have to put up with a lot of garbage, and even the "geologists" would have to see a Google Earth image themselves to even begin to answer the question.

So no, this is not some "government coverup" -- just an "alleged" cranky state employee.

You are correct in identifying that this location is not that remote from the Glenn Highway and I did not note it as such. However, if you follow the stream bed from the canyon down toward the highway you will see that it peters out. It is my guess that this stream is only flowing during spring runoff. From the terrain and seasonality it does not look like this would be a viable chum salmon spawning stream. If they were monitoring it would not explain the location of this object. It is certainly not a culvert.

I notice your location is Alaska and you appear to be knowledgeable about fish monitoring. Have you ever seen anything like this object this far back into a canyon? If there is an explanation of what it is and why it is there I would be interested in knowing what it is. That is all.

I only reported the communication as to my knowledge of what transpired. I was not attempting to paint a picture of some devilish coverup. However, the response was immediately why we wanted to know and the response was to the object.

Well, if there's an airport near by, maybe it's a string of those balls on a wire that orient planes and keep them from flying into the wires or other low obstacles.

I am surprised no one updated the imagery data to the "2012" setting in google earth. Doing so, shows this area deeply covered in a snow valley, which in Alaska would get quite deep in winter....and with no visible access roads to use as means of site-clearance for snow removal, it does not seem plausible to be an installation....that is manned at least.

You could theorize that there are tunnels but that would stretch the idea a bit too thin for my liking.

Flowrate & seasonality have no bearing on these short streams. I'll assume you are familiar with Anchorage, so I'll use an Anchorage point of reference here. Both forks of Little Campbell Creek are anadramous. Both forks of Little Campbell Creek are only technically accessable to fish during high water events, otherwise they are either frozen solid or just a small trickle... yet there are fish in there, surviving in pocket water and pools at the headwaters up in Far North.

The way these Fish & Game/Corps of Engineers fish surveys work, they don't care what is in the stream where the culvert is being installed. They care about what is in the stream between the headwaters and the culvert. If that involves surveying many miles of stream, so be it.

I'm not a field biologist or resource surveyor. I am but a roadway/drainage specialist Civil Engineer. I take the information the biologists collect and then design the fish passage culvert that works best within the structural confines of my road embankment at the crossing.

With your knowledge can you determine if in fact there was a determination made regarding this stream? In your work related experience have you ever seen a monitoring device such as the one in this canyon? After looking at the image as posted in this thread what do you think it is?

You anywhere near this thing? I'm interested in what it looks like from ground level, if only to have another datapoint on how to interpret aerial imagery, at which I am mediocre at best. I'm great on figuring out antennas but not so much on other infrastructure.

I am a 3 hour drive from it, but have little interest in going out there before May. The high temperatures at the lodge are around 10 below zero (F) this time of year and they are seeing about 5 1/2 hours of daylight. I'd guess the temperature on the side of the mountain, a mile+ up any of those draws from the highway, is pushing 30 below and seeing 50 MPH constant winds.

Sheep Mountain is a closed hunting unit within GMU 13, there isn't a major fishing destination located there, and I can find at least a dozen closer locations that would be more productive for berry picking, photography, and wildlife viewing during the summer months. I don't hike for the joy of hiking, gotta have a chance to catch, kill, harvest, or otherwise collect something on pretty much any trip I make. If I think about it next Fall when I go caribou hunting up North I will try to make a short stop there and wander up the canyon a ways, however.

Zounds! Can't blame you. I haven't been in Alaska since my interesting visit to Fort Wainwright many years ago.
