Tristan Scott of the Missoulian and Tony Bynum Talk Oil Drilling – Blackfeet Reservation, adjacent to Glacier National Park

Tristan Scott of the Missoulain and I sat down, over the phone for a one-on-one talk about my conservation photography project, “oil development on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.” It turns out he’s been covering the oil development for the news paper for quite some time. Tristan was interested in my project to document the oil development on the Blackfeet Reservation, near Glacier National Park’s east side, and along the Rocky Mountain Front. As I spoke with Tristan over my cell phone, I watched as dust from a gravel road engulfed a dozen heavy haul trucks pulling huge diesel pumps away from two oil pads near East Glacier, apparently they were done fracking those wells for the time being and were headed to a new location. Tristan and I talked about what I was up too and what I was seeing on the Reservation, and along the Rocky Mountain Front, and Glacier Park’s east side. To find out more, you can read his entire story here, Photographer documents oil development near Glacier National Park, it appeared in the April 11th issue of the Missoulian, a daily news paper printed in Missoula, Montana.

Are you positive in regards to the supply?|What i do not understood is if truth be told how you are not really much more well-favored than you might be now. You’re so intelligent.
