06-15-19 – Alabama Hills National Scenic Area



The Alabama Hills are a range of hills and rock formations near the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada in the Owens Valley, west of Lone Pine in Inyo County, California, United States. Though geographically separate from the Sierra Nevada, they are part of the same geological formation.

The Alabama Hills are managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) as the Alabama Hills Recreation Area. The area is managed as a protected habitat for public enjoyment. In March 2019, the US congress, as part of the California Deserts Wilderness Act, redesignated the area as the Alabama Hills National Scenic Area
