    the driving scene where travis remembers why he bought the land in paris texas (36m39s approx), was filmed in kramer junction, ca. https://www.google.com/maps/@34.9922464,-117.5415503,3a,75y,341.73h,92.93t,0r/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1saOp19vY0fyBF1-F6Rw-vlg!2e0!5s20111001T000000!7i13312!8i6656

    the eating mcdonalds in the back of the ranchero under the freeway scene (approx 1hr17m50sec) was filmed at the 5/14 fwy interchange in sylmar, ca. the freeway overpasses look different today because the original ones were destroyed in the 1994 northridge earthquake.https://www.google.com/maps/@34.3348054,-118.5083359,3a,75y,10.16h,97.12t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1siU6SUXrHXaEahCB6X5Ppdw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

    Was hoping to see the opening scene with Harry Dean Stanton walking in the desert. I’m pretty darn sure it’s not Texas, looks like Arizona.

      In response to Skotos khrodos, I believe I found the exact location of the opening scene with Harry Dean Stanton walking in the desert:
      29°35’05.3″N 103°44’01.4″W
      (Terlingua, Texas)

      BTW, a ranch which includes this specific desert area (pink bluffs/buttes) is located is being sold for $10 million; you can see the opening desert scene on the realtor promotional video currently on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0horhoM7Wbo (see 1:02 of video)

      You can also see a variety of other filming locations from the movie on a google map I generated:
