One of my favorite Twilight movie filming locations is The Shire located on the Columbia River off Hwy 14 in Washington. I was able to visit today and once again enjoy the beauty of the location. I was surprised by how low the water in the river is right now. It was very noticeable at the rock formation edge. I could even see to the river sandy banks where the little stream flows into the river. There were also several wood pilings visible that I had not seen before.  I was able to speak with a Unviersity of Oregon person there and she said they plan to open up the area next spring to the public and possibly have some music concerts on the grounds.  I hope all Twilight fans have a chance to visit sometime soon.
