The Shining

The Shining’s sweeping shot of the Overlook Hotel was filmed at The Timberline Lodge at the foot of Mt. Hood.  While it evokes a certain creep factor, the St. Bernard mascots on site remind you that it is indeed only a movie.

Still…I love the idea of this lodge at high elevation and shut off from the world by debilitating snow.  And what’s worse than ghosts?  Being alone with your own thoughts and allowing them to drive you crazy.
