• Alabama Hills - Lone Pine, California


      Photo by Megan Edwards
      A low range of mountains to the west of Lone Pine which has been used for dozens of western and science fiction movies. From town the hills appear to be mud-colored, but when you venture up there, you'll discover a garden of jumbled rock formations. There are dozens of natural arches enabling great photography options. The name comes from the "CSS Alabama." A glorious place to capture photographs with the rugged Sierra Nevada mountains to the west.

      If you go:
      Stop by the Lone Pine Film Museum and pick up a driving map to the various movie sites found here. All of the roads are fine for cars. Boondocking for RV's under BLM rules.
