    We love this place since we got our bikes we have been up there twice. There is some great riding all over the area. We didn't do any radical single track like what you show. When it's cooler I want to go east towards Death Valley it seems there is some good tracks over there too.

    That's like a "Get Out There and Ride" promo video.

    Where exactly in Alabama is this?
    Only joking I know it's somewhere in California.

    Admiral nailed it. This was just a teaser re-run from a trip last year I re-posted today in hopes of inspiring others to get out riding. Haven't been any good ride videos since Admiral's last North Idaho adventure.
    Nestled between 14,000ft plus Mt Whitney and Death Valley ( parts of which are below sea level) lies this interesting group of landforms called Alabama Hills. Lone Pine,California is the nearer town. This is certainly a fun place to explore on foot in a vehicle, or astride a TW.

    While I have previously camped there with my wife, my cat and my dogs on my last solo trip this old dog showed up looking a bit wore out. So I gave him food and drink and he then ambled of with nary a "Thanks Partner"

    While Alabama Hills are at about 4,600 ft one can immediately TW into the high country to Whitney Portal @ about 8,400 ft or Horseshoe Meadows right at 10,000 ft.

    We love Alabama hills... Lots of fun. We explored with our Baja... Someday hope to take the Tdub there.

    Yeah, take the TW! After all only so much trouble 13 hp can cause. TW takes a bit over half an hour to climb the 5,500 ft of elevation gain from hot Owens Valley to wilderness trailheads at Horseshoe Meadow's 10,000 ft.
    Takes a bit longer if there you see ice patches on the road. Possibly a lot longer if you don't see the ice and don't avoid in time...slippery stuff at any speed.
