  2. What are Alabama hills doing in California? Did they move there for the
    schools?

    Here's the "tale:" the Alabama Hills were name by a bunch of southern
    sympathizers during the Civil War after reading about the heroic exploits of
    the confederate ship, Alabama. however, the Alabama was sunk by a union ship
    named Kearsage. So, to retaliate, a bunch of union sympathizers a few miles
    to the north named their town Kearsage. And a few other things, as well.

    Anyway, enough semi-boring history. If you want to either burn film, or fill
    up a flash card quickly, this is the place. More photo-ops, and original
    ones, then you can possible capture in a couple of days. Truly a good take.
    Great mountain biking and 4 wheeling, as well.

    Yes, I adjusted for contrast to bring out some detail in the shadow areas,
    and adjusted color to match, as closely as possible, the original chrome.
    Other than that, nothing. This shot was scanned and printed to abut 2 x 5
    feet, and it holds up very well. Just love that little rangefinder.

    Yes ... and they were used for many of the outdoor location shots on the
    early "Oater" cowboy movie and TV shows.

    TV, movies, and a few other things, like commercials. The road that splits
    the Alabama hills in two is called Movie Road. Most of the local
    establishments have a variety of photos on their walls depicting various
    western stars shooting scenes in the hills. All cool stuff.
