We took a jeep ride up to Owl Creek Pass and stopped in the aspen-lined field where they filmed the final shoot-out in the movie “True Grit”. Remember the scene where John Wayne leads the good guys with guns blazing toward the bad guys? This is the place….not a movie set!

It is always a pleasure to meet interesting people in our travels and Colorado never disappoints. I was bounding down a tiny trail with all my camera gear in tow to get a pic of the Cimmaron Mountains and ran head on into Greg and his team. He is a bow elk hunter heading into the national forest with his two pack horses for the elk season. They had everything they would need for two weeks in the packs. I would love to hear how he makes out. I am certain it will be an adventure.
We also enjoyed a ride on Last Dollar Road and the foliage was grand! Nothing like a colorful quiet country road……
