6.24.17 – Lone Pine Peak (largest peak on the left) and Mt. Whitney (spiky peak on the right) framed through Mobius Arch. Although Lone Pine Peak looks higher in this image, it’s a matter of perspective. At 14,505 feet Mt. Whitney not only dwarfs Lone Pine Peak by over 1,000 feet, but is also the highest peak in the Lower 48. The rugged Alabama Hills at the base of the Sierra Nevada were used to film countless westerns over the last century, and are still used today for many Hollywood films.
