Mobius Arch Alabama Hills Rec. Area, California
The most photographed natural arche in the Alabama Hills. The hills where formed when the Sierra Nevada mountains uplifted and tilted to the west and the Inyo range uplifted and tilted to the east to create the sliver of hills about 20 km by 4 km in Owens Valley. Years of weathering created arches and rock spires like stacked potatoes. The Alabama Hills where named by prospectors sympathetic to the Civil War Confederates. The areas scenic and wonderful rock formations have been the backdrop of Hollywood film makers for many years. The arch is is often used in photographes to Mt. Whitney, the tallest mountain in the contiguous United States.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
