I was staying the night in Ridgecrest prior to hiking a section of the PCT. Decided to kill some time by driving out to the pinnacles and exploring the area. The pinnacles look like they don't see too much traffic- I had the entire place to myself.

Our hotel room in Lone Pine CA had a "local attractions" snippet that caught my attention:

The Pinnacles are recognizable in more than a dozen hit movies. Over thirty film projects a year are shot among the tufa pinnacles, including backdrops for car commercials and sci-fi movies and television series such as Land of the Lost, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, The Gate II, Lost in Space, and Planet of the Apes.

Thought it would be worth a gander...
