Landing a Tesla Supercharging station in Lone Pine is just one of the many advantages of being located along Highway 395. While charging your car – you can visit the Lone Pine Film History Museum and the city of Lone Pine. Located at the base to the Eastern Sierra’s highest point in the continental USA, Mt. Whitney – and the Alabama Hills, whose unique geological formations brought Hollywood studios to the area to shoot “Cowboy” films, are not to be missed.

Filming started in 1919 with a full-length feature film, The Roundup starring Fatty Arbuckle.
