Today Larry & Alyce picked us up to take us to see the Alabama Hills. When David asked Larry where the switchback road on the mountain across from us went, they took us up the road to Horseshoe Meadow. Wow - what a road & magnificent views! We had a short hike from where we parked out to Horseshoe Meadow. It's so great to be in the mountains again!
When we came down from Horseshoe Meadow we took the tour of the Alabama Hills we had started out to do. Lots of movies have been made in the Alabama Hills. Roy Rogers first starring feature, Under Western Stars, was filmed along Movie Road. Movie Flat was the location for Western movies with stars including John Wayne, Tom Mix, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy & others. It's still used for commercials & films. We took a short hike out to the Arch. Unfortunately, it was the wrong time of day to get a good shot of Mt Whitney behind the arch - maybe later.
After a busy afternoon of sightseeing with Alyce & Larry, they brought us home & stayed for dinner & more visiting. It was a great day!
