Old Stovepipe Wells
This waterhole, only one in the sand dune area of
Death Valley, was at the junction of two Indian
trails. During the bonanza days of Rhyolite and
Skidoo it was the only known water source on
the cross-valley road. When sand obscured
the spot, a length of stovepipe was inserted
as a marker. Hence its unique name.
