With the premiere of a brand new series of Twin Peaks almost upon us, it seemed like a good time to share some photos of the real Twin Peaks, the town of North Bend where the original series was shot.
Full disclosure here, I’m not a Twin Peaks mega-fan. I saw the series probably around five years ago and loved it (most of it) but never really thought much about it again. When I went to the real Twin Peaks in 2013 it was a last-minute, unplanned detour as part of a last-minute, unplanned road trip from British Columbia to Seattle.
I definitely kept a diary during this road trip but one of the downsides of being nomadic is that your possessions are never at hand. Considering I can’t quite remember if I ate this morning or not, the chances of me remembering much of this trip are slim.
All I can say is that watching Twin Peaks and subsequently visiting North Bend has given me a sense of great unease when it comes to rural, mountain-enclosed small towns. Which is inconvenient given that I now live in a rural, mountain-enclosed small town.
