The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Next Stop, Movie Flats

It was then, after we cooled our brakes, that we moved on to the Alabama Hills
which I've already showed all the pictures from.

Our camp was off the map to the right.  
I guess no movies were made there except those done by myself and you've already seen them.


  1. That is funny a whole map with movie locations. I felt like driving through movie scenes very often when I was in the USA. It all seemed so familiar, as if I had seen it before, but those must have been movies which were stored in my brain.

  2. Great map. So there the most histories were made.

  3. When I attended college at California Lutheran, there were old movie sets abandoned back in the hills. We used to trek back there to see them.

  4. And those are the only two pictures you show? Boooo!

  5. my sis would love that - she's a western addict (and a john wayne freak).

  6. I have just been catching up on your posts John... you visit some wonderful places.
    Can I wish you and yours a very Happy Christmas and I hope 2015 is a good year for you.

  7. Must have a the perfect views. I loved Maverick.

  8. Uh oh, if Wayne sees that Tremors movie site it might get added to our bucket list...
