Pictures from photo gallery: "Alabama Hills Recreation Area"


The vivid blue sky is a brilliant contrast against the golden rock of Mobius Arch, a rock formation in the Alabama Hills Recreation Area, and the snow covered mountains of the Sierra Nevada.

It's hard to believe that the rock from the Sierra Nevada Mountains is the same age as that of the Alabama Hills, the difference appearance arise from the different rates and methods of erosion.

It seems that the rock from the Alabama Hills was rounded by underground rivers before appearing above ground and where further weathering by rain and wind driven sand moulded the rock into the arch and knob formations we see today.
