Alabama, Hills that is (Week 6)

Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, CA

Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, CA

Swimming pools, movie stars. No, no, no. Alabama Hills, not Beverly Hills. So not many swimming pools but, as it turns out, lots of movie stars over the years. The Alabama Hills are a very cool area on the east side of the Sierras just outside the town of Lone Pine, CA. Over 400 movies have been shot there. Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous 48 states, looms above. On our way home now, we headed there after a few more days near Shoshone to avoid some more inclement weather.
