Hiya, planning a trip in october where i will be travelling from death valley to mammoth lakes (for an overnight stop) . To break up the journey, i am thinking if a quick stop in Lone Pine and seeing tha Alabama Hills. I havent got too much time, as want to push on to Mammoth lakes in time for sunset @ 6.30pm, but just wondered if anyone can advise how much time i should allow for a quick detour to see Alanama hills? In what direction do i go from Lone Pine (or is it well signposted?) Is it easy enough to find face rock and Alabama Arch ?! And can anyone advise on exact location of these? Also- i Think i read somewhere (but cant find it now) that theres a way to re join US 395 without backtracking to Lone Pine??! This is all time permitting, or if alabama hills are a do-not-miss option, then should i sacrifice sunset view at minaret vista point in mammoth?!?! .... Or should i leave DV earlier and try and see it all? Confused about timings and trying to see as much as poss without lingering too long... Any advice wd be much appreciated. Thanks!
