Pumpkin Rock is located in Horsetown USA, also known as Norco, CA, Just North of Corona off the 15 freeway It’s a great day Trip! Take the kids on a hike, it is STEEP, so wear hiking boots. Also alot of “art” on the rocks so may be some wording not appropriate for little ones. I parked at Pumpkin Rock South- Google maps off of Vandemolen and Valley Drive, near the golf course.
On the Set with Space Trucker and a new friend. The ring light was around the 8×10 camera, and fell down a bit creating that black ring, making it look all planet like! The alien design was borrowed from one of my favorite hotels, the Atomic Inn in, located just outside Death Valley in Beatty, Nevada. Take Me to more SPACE TRUCKER
