Ramblings of a Techno-Viking

Alabama Hills

West of the town of Lone Pine are some hills that have been popular with movie-makers for almost 100 years. There is a pull-out on Whitney Portal Road with a map of many of the sites, more than the on-line brochure I found. There are many interesting rock formations, and a few trees in the washes. Along Movie Road there are many places to camp. Poor Verizon signal, with my antenna and amp I was getting less that dial-up speed. No TV signals detected. A BLM ranger stopped and warned me that his volunteer group would be using the pullout I camped in for parking.

How excellent. This is a place I've been eyeing up for a while now. There're a couple of historical markers there, and the rock formations just look so neat.
