    following the death valley we made a brief stop here to take two steps and a few photos of what's left. Classic example of how Americans are able to make the most of what they have.

    Circa-1884 borax plant in Furnace Creek, where "20-mule teams" hauled the processed goods to market. Some interesting information displayed, but the view from the top of the hill, where it is located it wonderful. Wide open area with a mountain range in the background the Funeral Mountains Range ... Been there twice - once in August 2010 when it was so hot, that I did not go up to the 20 mule teams wagons, and back in December 2016, when we really enjoyed the moderate temperatures.

    Great to see something left of old mining. Was impressed by the 20 mule team wagon. Well maintained site.

    Great, quick stop on the way to Badwater Basin with a lot of history. Brings everything full picture around such an amazing environment.

    Super cool place to stepback in time. The exhibits are awesome.
