    Alabama Hills (aka Lone Pine)

    I've always been a western movie fan and for 30 years my Bucket List had Alabama Hills in the top 4 or 5 places to check out. Finally was close enough to tour the place last Fall. Checking out a map discovered other scenic sites I'd be traveling by, including Sequoia National Park and Mt Whitney, and Death Valley.





    Route headed towards Mt Whitney.














    First real good view of Mt Whitney














    Reaching Lone Pine and Alabama Hills-

    Everyone's first thought is where did they come up with this Alabama name.





    Many of you Western Movie fans will start recognizing some of these seens. I don't

    know really why power lines have been erected in the last 10 years but few old

    western movies are now filmed at Alabama Hills.


    If you watch an old western from the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's there is a very good

    chance it was filmed at Alabama Hills. Just a few include John Wayne, Lone Ranger, Tom Mix,

    etc.

    From the old westerns hundreds of scenes of bad guys chasing a stagecoach were filmed here.

    One more recent movie was “Tremors” staring Kevin Bacon and Reba McIntire about underground monsters harassing a dessert town.

    Ok, I'll admit. I touched it and it was made out of rubber. This movie items is located at the Lone Pine Western History Museum.

    Getting from Bakersfield/Fresno, Calif to Lone Pine is a good haul but once you reach

    Lone Pine it is a short distance to Dead Valley country. Entering Death Valley...


    https://lewisandclark.smugmug.com/Other/Alabama-Hills/i-vdnNGwX


    Can not remember the elevation from Lone Pine across Death Valley but I think it was close to a

    7,000 foot drop in elevation to Death Valley....at night it definitely gets your attention from a sharp drop in elevation.



    Mt Whitney is really beautiful country..

    A test to see if I can write a ride report and not screw up the direct entry image links from Google...

    After dinner, I headed back out to Jacksonville Beach to collect a sand and water sample. Due to the restoration of the beachfront, there was no way I could get water for a mile on either side of me. A chat with a local rider about motorcycles, iron butt style motorcycle rides, Southern California and motorcycle police officers ended my beach visit. I got the sand, now I need to get some sleep. Back on the bike and a quiet ride back to the room.

    A few more restless hours of sleep...then…

    Tuesday, October 18 2017 sorta…


    So, I have to now log off, then look at this thread.

    I did, no issues. Written in Google Docs, file must first be copied/pasted into Notepad, then copied/pasted from Notepad into a dialogue box here. Success.
