Travelocity's Let's Roam Series Travels to New Mexico on the Trail of Disney's The Lone Ranger

SOUTHLAKE, Texas – May 1, 2013 – In collaboration with New Mexico Tourism and Walt Disney Pictures, Travelocity’s latest “Let’s Roam” webisodes roam to New Mexico to discover the destinations and stories behind-the-scenes of Disney’s much-anticipated film, The Lone Ranger, starring Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) and Johnny Depp (Tanto). Travelocity Senior Editor, Courtney Scott and the Travelocity Roaming Gnome embark on four different adventures inspired by the film and the destination. From hot air ballooning over the Rio Puerco, where the town of “Colby” was built from the ground up, to road tripping into the mountains of Angel Fire through the Cimarron Canyon where the film’s epic train scene was shot, these special “Let’s Roam” webisodes showcase the diversity and beauty that New Mexico has to offer.

The first of the four “Let’s Roam with The Lone Ranger” webisodes takes you inside Rancho de Los Suenos, near Albuquerque, NM, the site of The Lone Ranger’s “Cowboy Bootcamp,” where the actors and stuntmen trained to ride horses, shoot guns, and learn tricks. Three other webisodes will air throughout the Lone Ranger promotional period, including: “How to Be a Modern-Day Outlaw in New Mexico” -- releasing on Wednesday, June 26, “ Hot Air Ballooning Over the Rio Puerco” – releasing on Wednesday, July 3 and “Summer Road Trip: On the Trail of the Lone Ranger” -- releasing on Wednesday, July 10.

The Mew Mexican locations visited in this custom co-branded series include Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Madrid, Angel Fire, Eagle Nest, and Cimarron Canyon State Park.
