That's what I thought at first, but after digging shafts they just hollowed out the center of the hill. There is a deep lake, pond, whatever you want to call it that is about 75'-100' deep. Maybe they used it to pump out the water?

Great thread. Funny that I used to live in both Fairbanks, Alaska and Barstow, CA just like a couple of previous posters. Both were fun places to wheel. Nothing unusual except that I once found a grizzly munching on a moose (kept driving, of course). Pretty common in AK.

Could still be an air pump. It is soft rock there correct? But the water pump seems plausible after seeing the pictures.
