About Burt & Donna Yost ...
Returning from a ski trip, Columbus Day weekend 1990, Burt and Donna Yost discovered Lone Pine and as it happens, the Lone Pine Film Festival. Fans of old westerns, Burt and Donna soon started making trips to Lone Pine and the Alabama's in search of their favorite movie locations. That led to a meeting with film Festival founder, Kerry Powell, and Director, Dave Holland with whom they became fast friends.
Since then, Burt and Donna have developed many additional friends in Lone Pine and have become well versed in the Alabama’s and Eastern Sierra landscape and respective movie locations. Their annual festival tours are always a sell-out, especially the “Back Lot” tour featured above. Burt and Donna call Santa Barbara home.
Celebrating the movies of Hollwoods Back Yard!
