In early October my husband and I traveled to Lone Pine, California specifically to attend their annual film festival celebrating the hundreds of films and TV shows made in the spectacular Alabama Hills at the foot of Mt. Whitney. The area is mainly known for Westerns, but was also used for Gunga Din, Tremors, Gladiator, Django Unchained, and Star Trek Generations. The film festival included a number of tours to sites used for famous scenes. The area is just spectacular, but the film angle added another dimension to this trip.
On a trip to the UK, we set our itinerary to allow us to visit Highclere Castle, the location of Downton Abbey. Couldn't get enough of it, we were the last people to leave! Of course, Stonehenge and Bath are close by.
