Lone Pine, California

The dreadful weather held us up in Barstow, a couple of days later we discovered the mudslides were so bad our preferred route would take about a week to clear, so after shaking the jello we decided to head up Highway 395 to Lone Pine.   What a lovely area!
There were some lovely views as we drove up out of the Mohave Desert.

We stayed at Boulder Creek, a lovely park just south of Lone Pine on Highway 395.
Looking across Owens Lake from the campground.

Looking towards Death Valley from the campground.

Looking towards the Eastern Sierra Nevada and yes that is snow on top of the mountains.

The Dow Hotel was built in 1923, many famous movie stars stayed in the hotel including John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and Hopalong Cassidy.

Main Street, Lone Pine.

We loved this mural on the side of McDonalds.

We found a great place for breakfast and lunch, the Alabama Hills CafĂ©, (sorry no photograph) the food was fabulous, just make sure you go hungry!   The next time we visit Lone Pine we’ll definitely return.

Have fun, we are!
