The Alabama Hills, The Road To Movies







Good afternoon to all ,those sweet people out there, that read this "old blog" of mine.
I truely enjoy posting it. What I post is true, as the info I receive , I post.
DesertDale is up to his same old tricks of find those fantasic sites. Oh! Yes, He even does a spell check for me.

There are some 30,000 acres of public land just west of Lone Pine, Ca., that was dedicated by the BLM in 1969. There are many plants around the area and the views are out-standing.
You can ride your bike here , there are all kinds of trails for hiking, just be sure to stay on the designted trails. There are no trash cans and no water. Just take out what you bring in.

It is one fancinating place. Plus don,t forget to go to the "Movie Flats" area.
There are over 100 plaques placed at the original sites. They have made so many moies here.

There is just so much to see and do such as: the sites where many of movies were made sence the 1920's. Such as Hopalong Cassidy, the Lone Ranger, Guna Din, Maverick, Gladitor, Roy Rogers, High Sierra, Rawhide and many, many more.
There is the "Film History Museum" is a must to vist. The price is , well worth it, $5.00. (thanks to goggle for photo of museum)

DesertDale even took me out to lunch while we were in town. It was at a very good "Mexican" restaurant. Enjoyed every bite.

Back to our beautiful site . Enjoying the evening walks, wacthing the sun set.

Enjoy life. Kitfoxgal
