Anyone else see this short commercial?
Mountains in background could be Eastern Wall of Sierras.
Clincher might be the line of trees.
Looks right for Owens Valley.

I think you're right. Looks about right. Here's a link online.

It looks like Birchim Lane in Round Valley just north of Bishop. Wheeler Crest in snow in the background and the Pine Creek moraine on the left in the driving scene. The Round Valley roads are lined on both sides with cottonwoods, Birchim lines up right with the crest and moraine.

Birchim Lane is the diagonal line of cottonwoods in the left foreground.

Just got back from Bishop, and I also think it was taken a bit north of town. If you go east on Line Street there's a low ridge in front of the Sierra - and not seen in the video - but further north this ridge flattens out.

Excellent identification, Dale!

From Google Maps:

Looking west on Birchim Lane - 12/2009:



Notice the matching crest between Dale's picture and Google's?
