Alabama Hills is a stunning geological landscape located in California's Eastern Sierra region. Although it is not a national park itself, it serves as a unique stop on a road trip from Yosemite National Park to Death Valley National Park, offering travelers a contrasting view of natural beauty with its distinctive rock formations, arches, and scenic vistas.
