The following is a “Preliminary Report” on the amazing Tie Hacker Culture of the Uintas North Slope. It is a photo essay with the descriptive text acompanying each image from caption to comment. You will miss the text if you see it as a slide show. Click on the first image and then view one at a time to get the explanation of this incredible story of true unsung American heroes. By late Spring there will be an important updating, and after the 2010 summer/fall season, a completion of the story, including reports on important ghost towns and heretofore unpublished reports on at least one important tie hacker community in a remote, seldom visited North Slope drainage.
