Here are some images of the “One Tree Hill” filming. The crew filmed several locations during the day and night around town for a week. These photos were taken in front of the Egyptian Theatre, an iconic landmark here in Park City. The Park City episode airs this Monday May 17, on the CW Television Network.

Interstate 80 Parking Lot

Here are a series of photos taken with my phone while I sat in my car waiting for multiple accidents to be cleared on I-80 West bound toward Salt Lake City. My usually 30 minute drive from park City to the valley took nearly 2 hours this day. The drive sucked but breakfast with was priceless.

It’s still snowing in Utah, and doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon. I miss the warm California Spring weather that I grew up with.
