Guided Tours Through Alabama Hills
November 25 @ 10:00 am
The Bureau of Land Management Bishop Field Office, Alabama Hills Stewardship Group and Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association will be hosting two-hour, guided hikes about the film geology and natural history of the Alabama Hills. Hikes will begin at 10:00 am and leave from the Eastern Sierra Interagency Visitor Center at the intersection of U.S. Route 395 and California State Route 136 in Lone Pine.
Join the BLM for a hike through Alabama Hills’ film history, where more than 400 movies and countless commercials have been filmed. Hear interesting and amusing stories about numerous productions. These walks will cover an area known as “Movie Flat,” which includes locations from memorable films such as Gunga Din, Tremors, Bad Day at Black Rock and Django Unchained. Participants should carpool as parking is limited. Wear layered clothing and footwear suitable for a range of temperatures and varied terrain. Bring a camera, binoculars and at least one quart of water.
