Lone Pine California
October 1, 2014 § 1 Comment
We are in Tuttle Creek campground which is administered by the Bureau of Land Management. It is about 5 miles west of Lone Pine into the Sierra mountains. We are near the base of Mount Whitney which is the tallest peak in the contiguous 48 states. Looking up from our vantage point it is difficult to tell which peak along the ridge is Mount Whitney.
I’m pretty sure the one in the middle is Mount Whitney.
The area we are in is called the Alabama Hills and has been used for movies since the 1920’s. We are looking forward to visiting some of the specific locations.
Before leaving our last camp at Crowley Lake, we had rain and snow. The snow level came almost as low as we were but we got rain that froze a coating of ice over everything over night.
The temperatures here are a little warmer in the mid seventies by day and fifties by night with a warming trend near the end of the week in the upper eighties. Right now wind is the biggest problem.
