Alabama Hills, part 2
I continued pedaling along Movie Flat Road, frequently turning up sandy tracks leading into clumps of rocky formations. Looking in any direction revealed spires and arches and jumbles requiring photographs. I wasn’t reeling off many miles, but I was sure expending pixels.

Thanks for spending your pixels for our entertainment. Those photos are spectacular. Every one.
The fabulous landscape does all the work! I just point the camera in any direction and give it a click. My only task was to ensure I had a full supply of pixels available. 😉
Wow! All those movies! I scanned the list of movies filmed there and couldn’t believe it. The ones I’ve seen that really stood out were Broken Arrow, Bad Day at Blackrock (Great), Django Unchained, G.I. Jane, Kalifornia, Maverick, Nevada Smith, and Tremors.
Alabama is one of only five states I’ve never been to, but that’s because I never knew it had such awesome scenery. I always thought it was just a boring, gulf coast, red state. Thanks to your post here, the hills of beautiful Alabama are going to be my next bike touring destination–the land of Rosa Parks, Bear Bryant, Harper Lee and amazingly eroded landscapes. Who woulda thunk it?
Well, yeah, but fortunately there was no sign of George Wallace or Bull Connor.
Great photos and excellent examples of spheroidal weathering.
A little research revealed the Alabama Hills were named after a Confederate warship, the CSS Alabama.
Don’t mention that to Greg!
