Highway 395

© noheadimg

Highway 395 runs several thousand miles from the northern fringes of the Los Angeles basin to the Canadian border. The most interesting stretch of the route stretches 400 km (250 miles) between Lone Pine, in the shadow of 4350 m (14,500 feet) high Mount Whitney and Carson City in Nevada.

Just west of Lone Pine are the scenic Alabama Hills, where films such as Gunga Din and How the West Was Won were shot. A film festival is held there every year in October.

About a 30 minutes drive north of Lone Pine is the Manzanar National Historic Site, where you can see the remains of one of the infamous 'relocation' camps in which American citizens of Japanese descent were imprisoned during WWII. A little farther on is the Eastern California Museum, which consists of a mixed bag of displays on natural history, Paiute Indian basketry and ancient Milk of Magnesia bottles.
