McKittrrick Oil Fields

Chevron, Mobile, Occidental are all represented in these oil fields in the hills.

Try to imagine men and mule teams hauling surface crude out of this place in the early 1900s. They refined the surface crude into Kerosene. The trip to any town and WATER by wagon and mule train was days away!
I wonder if most oil workers in today's world live in mostly isolated dry places? Hmmm, perhaps not...some are out at sea.
