Take US395 to Lone Pine; turn west on Whitney Portal Rd; enter the Alabama Hills from Movie Rd (dirt/gravel); proceed to the Arches trail.
In the Alabama Hills of California, honey-hued boulders and arches sit beneath the sheer face of the Eastern Sierra, which includes some of the tallest peaks in the lower 48 (including Mt. Whitney, the tallest). In this photo, the sun is just beginning to grace Mobius Arch (a.k.a. 'Alabama Hills Arch') while nearby boulders cast shadows on the arch. Visible through the arch is the aforementioned Mt. Whitney, the tallest peak in the lower 48 US states at 14,505ft.
