"Go West, Young Man, Go West" was an expression first used by John Babsone Lane Soule in the Terre Haute Express in 1851. It appealed to Horace Greeley, who rephrased it slightly in an editorial in the New York Tribune on July 13, 1865
Pictured is the Alabama Hills a "range of hills" and rock formations near the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the Owens Valley, west of Lone Pine in Inyo County, California.
Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, The Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy and John Wayne just to name a few, lived in these Alabama Hills. At least that is what I thought as a kid, since so many of their movies and television series were shot right there among the rounded rocks at the base of the Sierra Nevada’s sharp east side and at the foot of the tallest peak in the lower 48 states, Mt. Whitney. Yes, in these hills, my western heroes roamed, fought the bad guys and for ever etched a place in American history and found a spot in my heart.
