2nd stage of this summer's movie location trip: now booked!
The second leg of our three location summer movie tour has now been arranged and booked! Still trying to come up with a name for this trip. You know me, I like branding and logo-ing stuff.
Leaving the Kent Farm location from "Superman The Movie" after spending two days near Calgary, Alberta Canada, we'll fly to Rapid City, North Dakota, stay overnight there, then travel two hours the next morning over the border into Wyoming and arrive at Devil's Tower.
Staying at the Devil's Tower Lodge, which is practically right at the foot of the monument itself, we'll spend part of the next day and a half exploring the same path Richard Dreyfuss' and Melinda Dillon's character's from "Close Encounters" took up to the Tower itself, peering around the edge and witnessing our first encounter with extraterrestrial visitors.
A particular spot I've always wanted to arrive at, I know that moment when we see the other side for the first time will definitely bring chills of excitement. Even though nothing was actually filmed on the 'dark side', it'll still connect that this is where it all took place! There are various pathways and trails in and around the monument site we'll explore as well.
Moving into our final day we'll visit Mount Rushmore which neither one of us has ever been too. A stop at the Crazy Horse Memorial will finish up the longest stopover portion of this trip. From there we'll board another plane and head to the third and final destination of our two country excursion; the "Field of Dreams" baseball field in Iowa. I'll be booking that, as well as the flight home, very shortly.
