Sleeping with John Wayne… Dormindo com John Wayne…

Not really with him but… in the hotel he used to stay while filming in Lone Pine, Alabama Hills! His Western films were made here in this incredible location !

Lone Pine, in California, is nested in the heart of the beautiful Eastern High Sierra. Lone Pine is the gateway to both Mt.Whitney – the tallest mountain in the contiguous United States at 14,497 feet – and Death Valley National Park, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere at 282 feet below sea level. Lone Pine is also home of the Alabama Hills, whose unique granite boulders were used as a backdrop for over 300 movies, standing in for locations from all over the world.

Não exatamente com ele mas… no hotel onde ele dormia enquanto filmava em Lone Pine, nas montanhas Alabama !

Lone Pine, na Califórnia, está no coração da linda Serra Nevada. É a porta de entrada do Monte Whitney – a mais alta montanha no contíguo Estados Unidos da América com 4.420 de altitude – e o Parque Nacional do Vale da Morte, o ponto mais baixo do Hemisfério Oeste americano com 86 metros abaixo do nivel do mar. Em Lone Pine também se encontram as Montanhas Alabama, com pedras de formas interessantes usadas como cenário de mais de 300 filmes de Bang- bang (Velho Oeste).
