Funeral Mountains Wilderness
SIZE: 28,110 acres
LOCATION: Inyo County; 3 miles northwest of
Death Valley Junction, California
Amargosa Desert alluvial
slopes ascend into the Funeral Mountains. Rugged and colorful bands of
limestone rock lay to rest any images conjured up by the Funeral Mountains, for
which this wilderness area is named. Elevations range from 2,200 feet and rise
4,950 feet to the summit of Bat Mountain. Capped at nearly 7,000 feet, Pyramid Peak
and the western boundary of this wilderness lie within
Death Valley National Park.
Desert bighorn sheep
have been seen near these peaks.
