Sunset Rocks – Tuttle Creek – Lone Pine, CA
The Alabama Hills area west of Lone Pine has been used as a location for many movies since the 1920′s, representing the old American southwest in westerns, the Khyber Pass area in movies about British Imperialism, and even alien worlds in sci-fi pictures.
Tuttle Creek Road turns off of Whitney Portal Road long before the climb up to Movie Road, where many of the films were shot, and winds through a narrow canyon with tall rock formations and views of Lone Pine Peak and the Sierras.
This view is of some of the rock formations that caught my eye in the light of the setting sun on a trip through there this past June. I loved the shapes of the rocks, and the way the fading light enhanced the shadows and the reds of the iron ore in the rocks.
