One of the best kept secretes in Santa Clarita is the Blue Sky Movie Ranch. The ranch is about forty-five minutes north of Los Angeles. There is an old fashion gas station, a cave and did I mention Iraq, yes nestle in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains is an Iraq. The perfect place to film your next block buster film or an exotic photo shoot in the Sahara desert without ever needing a passport.
Rene Veluzat runs the Blue Sky Movie Ranch (661-296-4572), he is one of the nicest guys you could meet, the stories he can tell will keep you laughing; Rene is a pro, he is constantly tweaking the ranch, adding new things and updating buildings. If you watch the "Dukes of Hazards" back in the 80's you have seen this ranch. It has easy access for large and small vehicles and the location is perfect from the smallest photo shoots to the largest block buster movies. Check it out.
