Mobius Arch

Alabama Hills - Lone Pine, CA


The Alabama Hills is one the many interesting places located in the Owen River Valley just east of Mt. Whitney and the High Sierras. The location, just a few miles west of Lone Pine, CA, was home to hundreds of old Hollywood western movies over the past 50 years. What make it so interesting for photography are the massive boulders scattered throughout the area, the countless rock formations, and the rolling hills all at the base of the Sierra Mountains.

There are many great landscape opportunities in The Alabama Hills, but my favorite is a natural arch known as Mobius Arch. The 15ft. arch, which is an easy 200yd. hike from Movie Road, provides a unique window view of the majestic Sierras in the background.
