Airflight Cafe - Abandoned Twilight Zone Filming Location

Updated: Oct 27, 2021

The year is 1847. Chris Horn, a man in his late 30's, is leading a train of wagons from Ohio to California. When his son falls ill, he goes searching for supplies "over the rim" of a nearby hill but instead finds himself a victim of...the Twilight Zone!

If you're a fan of Ron Serling, this is a quick stop off HWY 395 in Olancha, CA. Not much in the area so keep your eyes peeled as you near the town of Grant. Safe Travels!
