Made it back in last light after drive all the way to Mammoth Lakes 8.600 feet up in the Eastern Sierra's of California. The drive up Hwy 385 is spectacular, starting with Red Rock Canyon State park and especially when you begin to enter Lone Pine, CA. This is the home of the famous Alabama Hills where all the westerns back in the day were filmed.

Check out Yellow flowers.
Up Highway 395. This is on the "other side" of Sierra's from Yosemite. But ya gotta go all the way around and up to get to it because roads though Yosemite (hwy 120) closed. So, about a 380 mile drive.
Very popular cafe in Lone Pine, CA. Right behind it. The famous "Alabama Hills." A geographical wonder and site of hundreds of movie sets back in the day to present. Especially old Westerns.
This museum in Lone Pine a treasure trove of old western history that was all filmed around the Alabama Hills.
Part of the Alabama Hills. Note the rock formations. The snow capped mountains in background appear in many movies.
Will post a few more pics of the Mammoth Lake area later. Hope everyone has been good. And things will get back to rockin soon also. :)
