Where in the hell am I?

Look at the pretty pictures!

Just got back from a second run at the wind farm in Minco, Oklahoma. Didn’t take as many pictures this time as I was the field director, but I did snap a few of some animals and some historic artifacts. You may have seen a few of these on Facebook (before I got yelled out for spending too much time on Facebook in the field).

This link will take you to my Minco II photostream on Flickr, with photos from both the March and February surveys.

I’m still chewing on my answer to this week’s Blogging Archaeology blog carnival question.

Next on the fieldwork agenda is a transmission line survey in the Texas Hill Country. Should be a great survey in really pretty country, and good potential for some interesting sites.



  1. Great tin-men pic. What a desolate looking place, although I wouldn’t complain about temps in the 70s!

  2. It’s not so much desolate as heavily eroded in some areas and just very blandly pastoral. When I think of desolate, I think of Wyoming or West Texas (which I actually think are really beautiful).
    The weather was really great, for sure. I’ve already started my 2011 farmer’s tan.

  3. Hi there! Nice pictures! One quick question: were the wind turbines running while you were there? Thank you!

    • Yes, all the turbines I saw were running.
      Thank you!
