Cordero's Run, Alabama Hills (shot using the Astraeus Aerial Cinema System)
The Dow Villa Motel is set in the heart of the beautiful Eastern High Sierra.
Lone Pine is the gateway to both Mt. Whitney, the tallest mountain in the continguous
United States at 14,496 feet, and Death Valley National Park, the lowest point in the
Western Hemisphere at 282 feet below sea level. Lone Pine is also home to the Alabama Hills.
These granite boulders were used as a backdrop for over 300 movies, many of them Westerns.
Lone Pine offers spectacular four-season beauty. Spring bursts with desert wildflowers, while
Autumn colors set the Owens Valley ablaze with hues of gold. Winter vacationers will enjoy
the warmth and beauty of the Owens Valley and the majestic snow-capped peaks.
