Driving around Carver County, I had no clue where the opening scenes were shot, nor was the snow blowing like in the movie. But when I chanced down this side road, I felt a shiver of recognition.
I stopped the car and climbed out. Holding up my phone to compare the scene with the movie, I noticed a car pulling up behind me. After studying me for a minute, the passenger rolled down her window and asked if I needed help.
This encounter repeated itself every time I pulled over to photograph.
