PINEDALE, WY - A man camp alongside Wyoming state highway 189 between Rock Springs and Pinedale where gas field workers stay during peak season on August 20, 2005. Operated by a Canadian firm, occupants say the camp reminds them of a jail. They are well fed and have recreation facilities but there is a no alcohol, drugs, or guests--primarily female--for the mostly male occupants. Man camps are seen as a solution to the housing shortages in the neighboring small towns--Pinedale's population is 1400--for these often seasonal workers working 12 hour days for weeks on end.
