The silence, open vistas and natural beauty of the Alabama Hills in Lone Pine reflect a sense of peace, a respect for the land and accessibility for the responsible user. The goal the community of Lone Pine, BLM, and individual stakeholders has is to work together as good stewards.
From the grand scale of geography to the smallest details of flowers, from the sudden power of the wind to the timeless processes of geology, the Alabama Hills draw people to wander, contemplate, experience solitude and enjoy an incredible range of discovery and activity.
While visitation and multiple use by outdoor enthusiasts, sports lovers, artists and visitors is increasing, the rocks, roads, hiking paths, creeks and flora remain scenic and unspoiled. Film industry use continues, but with a heightened sense of history for both the area and the films of Hollywood.
The fragility of the area, management for sustainable activity, and the mutual respect of the stakeholders add to the area’s unique and special needs. The play of light and quality of air lift the spirit and assure the participants that all challenges can be addressed and solutions found by listening and working together. These Alabama Hills continue to foster an important and complex relationship with all of us.
