New on 500px : Charcoal Kilns by westerncamper by westerncamper

Located in a remote corner of death valley national park are ten beehive shaped masonry structures, about 25 feet high and believed to be the best known surviving example of such kilns to be found in the western states. Construction was completed in 1877 and they provided charcoal for smelting needs of nearby silver mines.
