Lone Pine, California: Nightmare RockLarge boulder dimpled in a way that inspires artists to transform it into a face -- sometimes cute, sometimes psychotic.
Visitor Tips and News About Nightmare Rock
Nightmare Rock is one of our favorite places to visit before heading over to Death Valley. We love the Mount Whitney Portal Road drive, and the drive on Movie Road. So much cinema history was made here![Deb, 01/01/2016]
Pretty funny creation -- on the way up to Whitney Portal.[David Washburn, 08/06/2015]
A bit hard to find! Passed it going up. Almost missed it going back. Maybe 1-2 miles in on Whitney Portal road. Not far! A little turn in to photograph it. Righthand side if you're headed towards the mountain.[CS, 07/06/2015]
From the bowels of the Alabama Hills comes Nightmare Rock! Graffiti for the absurd is 4 miles west of Lone Pine, CA on Whitney Portal Road. Added bonus, more than 300 movies have been filmed in the area...from Gunga Din to Gladiator![Joel Rayburn, 08/01/2011]
