Old Stovepipe Wells was the only water hole in the sand dunes area of Death Valley National Park, California and was the junction of two Native American trails. During the mining booms of Rhyolite and Skidoo, it was the only known water source on the cross-valley road. But winds would obscure the spot with sand, so miners placed a length of stovepipe as a marker. Photo by Dave Alexander.
