Above: High up on Wildrose Canyon Road, which climbs the western side of the Panamint Mountains, are the Wildrose Charcoal Kilns. Built in 1877, the 10 beehive-shaped masonry kilns are the best- preserved examples in the West. Pinyon pine logs were burned in the kilns to create charcoal, which was transported 25 miles away to smelters near lead- silver mines in the Argus Range. From the kilns you can hike up to a saddle where you can see Badwater Basin and Mount Whitney from the same spot.
