Well I'm not sure where the externals were shot in Pale Rider.  I know they were shot in the Sawtooth NRA, and the town shots in the ghost town of Bodie, California.  The film opens with mountains with forrested morianes below them, which could be someplace like this shot of the southern Sawtooth range:

But it was a great day anyway.  Nothing like snow capped mountains, an alpine lake, my Stetson, and my S&W revolver.

That's Pettit Lake, one of the smaller ones between Alturas Lake and Redfish Lake. The surface of Pettit Lake is at 6996 feet elevation.

Heck it just clears out your sinuses.

 

Part of the trip was to see fall colors, but I got there too late.  The aspens turn bright yellow but they are past their prime now up there and are just dry brown.  Fall comes early at high elevations - and it got down to 13 degrees F last week in Stanley.  IIUC trees use the onset of cold to trigger color change and loss of leaves in the fall.  Serious snowfall is supposed to start next week with temps down to minus 3 degrees F next Tuesday.

Gee whiz Zen,

 

You've been gone so long that I've been able to restore the beater Miata in the meantime.  Check out my $75 used glass window top.

Zeeennnnn! I love the new signature, very moving!

 

Saw Ender's Game at my local Vue, it was good not great, sticks fairly closely to the book from what I can remember of it. 15 year old Asa Butterfield was a good choice for the role of Ender Wiggin, who was even younger in the book. You may remember Asa from Scorsese's film Hugo. Harrison Ford looks old, really old, surrounded by all these kids, even his chin scar is older than most of the cast and crew. Sir Ben Kingsley turns up near the end as a legendary pilot who helped defeat the insect-like alien race when they first invaded Earth, It's Starship Troopers with an even younger cast. Excellent visual effects. 4 out of 5.

 

I saw the 2 minute trailer to Gravity on the big screen in 2D. Still haven't decided on seeing the other 88mins.

 

Thor 2 next week.
