Birch Creek Kilns Location, Lemhi Valley

My personal favorite POV of the Birch Creek Charcoal Kiln site was when first approaching the location; the scale and the open, somewhat desolate surroundings provide the necessary context to imagine this charcoal production operation. At peak production, there were 16 of those beehive kilns in a solid row here...12 of those, so the interpretive display informs us, were torn down and recycled into other buildings in the nearby locale of Woodland and Nicholia...
