Walking around in the Alabama Hills was fascinating not only for the memories of cowboy movies shot in these locations- but for the frequent views of Mt. Whitney just above the rock formations. This is a place I would like to visit again.
The mountains behind the Alabama Hills made a beautiful backdrop as Lonnie and I drove through the dirt side roads of this fascinating area which was the setting for so many old western movies. This is a zoomed in view of Mr. Whitney behind the hills.
We have just returned from a fantastic trip to Lone Pine, California with my photo group. The goal was to see the Alabama Hills where many old movies, especially westerns, were filmed. It is a beautiful area with Mt. Whitney as a backdrop, and few in our group had ever been there. I wasn’t sure how I would do on this trip, because I knew that to see much of the area I would have to do a lot of walking. But my knee held up great, and with the help of my trekking poles, I was able to actually do a short hike up and down on uneven ground in order to take advantage of one of the iconic photo ops- the view of Mt. Whitney as seen through Mobius Arch.
BTW, to take this photo, you have to lie on your back on top of a boulder.
