Twin Peaks – A Rock Throwing Trip to Tibet

In one of the defining moments of Twin Peaks, Agent Cooper demonstrates his deductive Tibetan rock throwing technique to Sheriff Truman and his staff in Episode 2.  Upon visiting the filming location in September of 2009, I was absolutely horrified to find that many of the trees had been chopped down ruthlessly.  I believe the area is currently some sort of ranger station  – but still, what was left felt magical in its own way.

The area was also used in Episode 2 when Mike and Bobby meet Leo in the woods to complete a drug transaction.  I still wonder who was supposed to be hiding behind that tree…

Yes, I have a One Eyed Jack’s shirt on above and I took that rock home as a memento.  How did a nerd like me get to marry the beautiful girl in the next picture over?  She takes alot of the cool pictures you see on the site.

Unfortunately this really fun location was only used once more in the series at the end of Episode 16 after Leland dies and Agent Cooper, Truman, Rosenfield and Briggs discuss the possibility of BOB being real.  I really wish the show had expounded on this idea, and its a sadness this plot point was basically abandoned.

Feel free to drop by at 1021 Las Virgenes Road near Agoura Hills, they seem to be welcoming to our kind.  They are closed on weekends though, so plan accordingly.  Thanks to charles for originally finding this location.
