What not to miss in Death Valley?

My fiance' and I are spending the 19th-morning of the 22nd in Death Valley. I've been doing hella research on what not to miss, but wondered if anyone had any "secret" spots that are absolutely not to miss. I know about the Opera House, and we're renting a Jeep just so we can go out to the Racetrack. I plan on some classic shots in Rhyolite, and eating Mexican breakfast in that colorful joint in Beatty, NV. And I scheduled this trip to have the full moon set over Manly Beacon as the sun rises. We're staying in Panamint Springs, and are also considering taking a morning trip up to the Alabama Hills and Manzanar. But what am I missing?
I just don't want to come back from a great trip and then hear about something we'd missed. We will have 4 wheel drive (and I'm pretty fairly accomplished, thataway) so rough roads shouldn't be a problem.
