    Is this more Alabama Hills shenanigan's? How big of a riding area is Alabama Hills? When I was in the area last it seemed like these John Wayne cut him off at the pass rocks, was a smaller area than I would have thought. Of course, the actual riding area could be much larger than what we paid attention too.

    Love the look of this area! Some pretty "narrow goin's" along some of those trails.... great rock formations all along.

    The HooDoo terrain encompasses only a few square miles however there are other distractions. Take a nice 8 mile twisty road and you end up about 3 horizontal air miles away but 1 mile higher in elevation and the flavor changes considerably. This is the popular approach for climbing MT. Whitney

    I've just about convinced myself to return for more good winter time camping and riding since I have not been back for a few years.
    Here is my first ever TW video shot with a cell phone taped to my helmet. You can see how the place is very inviting. Makes a good jumping off point for trips into the high sierras, Death Valley, and the White Mountains with their ancient bristle cone trees.

    Yes the Hills area is cool and not too big as Fred points out some good riding in the area. We went south and up the road to the Golden trout wildernesses. East across the valley to the morth a lot of dirt to mining claims. Also Masurka Rd Are plus not to far east to west Death Valley. North of AH is the Japanese interment camp. Plus the Hills are a great place to camp and would make a great TW event. A must see is the movie museum in lone pine.

    Great camping spots either in secluded alcoves or my preference is places with dawn views of Mt. Whitney.

    I like camping up in the nearby White Mountains too. There's some pretty nice dry 4,000+ year old firewood above 10,000 ft.bristlecone.jpg Wife wanted to take this one homeUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_266.jpg

    Main gate may have a seasonal closure by now but one can sneak up the very steep Silver Creek jeep road out of Bishop. Tends to be flowing water and occasional desert bighorn herds.UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1a6.jpg

    While not terribly remote but I still advise filling up the gas tank before wandering too far from civilization.UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1d0.jpg

    The Bristlecone and Bodi photos above were from a car trip but the TW has been to both. There are many Eastern Sierra destinations reachable by TW friendly routes not used by the average visitor. While Bristlecone has the rather excellent Grandview Campground there are backcountry options if one takes an alternate approach. UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1a2.jpg

    Both TW and I were weezing a bit when the jeep road finally met the official road a bit above the main attractions. Still it was great to wander on foot to some of many infrequently visited bristlecone stands. There is a tremendous amount to be seen beyond where 95% of visitors stop in most all natural attractions. My TW just helps me get closer. UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_179.jpg
