My dad lived at Big Creek for a couple of years when he was a kid. This was taken in 1941 with the airstrip behind him to the south. The airstrip was a little shorter then, they have since extended it into the area where he is standing.

Speaking of Stibnite, there is a video on Shortfield.com of a 172 landing there. Anyone know of the details of the strip, i.e. who owns it, why it isn't on the charts, is it maintained, etc.? The video is from a few years ago, but it looks to be in good shape. I've just always been curious.
