Peach isn't always 100% correct. (Sorry peach just pouring the truth tea) She hasn't shown us any proof, so we can't be sure. :P

It is okay. Some things you just have to take on faith. :tup:

Amazing Race films in Juneau
Juneau will be featured on the CBS reality TV game show Amazing Race.

Nancy Woizeschke , president and CEO of the Juneau Convention and Visitors Bureau, says the participants and a production crew were here Tuesday.

She says they confirmed talk they heard through the grapevine that the three final teams and a production crew were filming what they believe to be this season's finale.

She says they're told they went home Wednesday morning.

Woizeschke says they were surprised since they weren't contacted for assistance.

But she glad glad Juneau was their choice. Woizeschke says getting the word out about Juneau only helps.

Now that we've got some more location info from IinAlaska !!!

Here's a map. 

The red is the taxi from the airport to the Douglas Island boat harbor:   10 miles

The purple is the Jet Boat trip to the Taku River (Taku River Lodge? or Grizzly Bar?)  access to two great glaciers for an ice field task.

The blue is Float Plane from Taku River to Hoonah for the zipline ride.


I marked the spot where this shot was taken:

The Grizzly Bar would be a good choice with the Norris Glacier right behind it.  The Grizzly Bar is a large sand bar also know as the Grizzly flats.  The boats would be able to put racers ashore here and then they would have access to the Norris Glacier.  I know they have dog sled tours on the Norris glacier.    I talked to a person who just returned from the river and he said the Grizzly Bar was completely under water on Thursday.  The Taku River is at flood stage today.  It began to rise on Tuesday afternoon about the time our racers were heading up the river.  Should be some interesting shoots!

Start line preview - looks like Calico Ghost Town in Yermo CA.


Not quite WP!  it's actually the western town set at the Santa Clarita Melody Ranch (studio) where the HBO series Deadwood was shot, and most recently the movie Django Unchained.

Good spot, Neobie!

That place is close to the French version's first season (Golden Oak Ranch). Looks like a Western movie shooting.

I don't get the big deal. California is a great place with a lot of diversity. Its just a starting line  :crazy:

I loved starting lines during the early TAR seasons when teams began racing in renowned places with significant statial uniqueness. New York is famous for its beautiful Central Park, Nevada is known for its flat plains and mountainous lands, South Florida is known for the Everglades National Park, teams paid a visit to Santa Monica's infamous amusement pier, Chicago locals know the enormous beauty of Buckingham Fountain, and Gas Works made a rare sighting to see all of downtown Seattle. I miss these types of unique starting lines when it intrigued me to visit there.
Just to name a couple from L.A. County starting lines, TAR16: A random park in New York or Washington could do justice also with a public transportation twist. TAR19: The temple doesn't really make want to visit there although it hints at the Taiwan visit in the first leg. TAR21: Why did they choose that particular bridge? Does it really serve any purpose in defining Los Angeles? TAR22: It's so crowded on the Griffith Observatory roof that Meghan tripped. Although I feel mixed with this starting line, it didn't really make me say, "I want to go there!" As for the film ranch, not excited to see teams start in a random production studio in a random L.A. County city.

Great Salt Lake/Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah (near Salt Lake City Int'l Airport), the Sonoran Desert in Arizona (near Phoenix Sky Harbour Int'l Airport), and the rocket launch pad at NASA (near Houston Intercontinental Airport) would serve as unique starting lines, and there is no fee necessary to enter 2 of 3 of those locations. I'm just disappointed in the people creating the routes that they just choose a start line in L.A. without bothering going anywhere else and go. :(

I think they've just decided to continue starting in LA because that's where their headquarterd and is home to a major international airport. For spoiler purposes, I'm fine with it. We always get pictures of most of the teams at LAX.
