The story

These ten 25 feet structures (they’re not small) were built more than 135 years ago, to convert lumber into charcoal, to be used as a fuel in a nearby mine. Their active life was short-lived (1879 to 1882) but they’re still in great shape. It can feel a bit spooky arriving to this place at midnight during your first visit, all by yourself, bringing the lights inside each of the kilns and what not, but photographically speaking, it was rather entertaining. I’m definitely coming back! By the way, it was reaaally cold up there at midnight! Yes, this is in Death Valley National Park, but this site is up in a mountain, around 7000 feet high.
