Autumn at Owl Creek Pass
South of Cimarron, CO, a movie was made. John Wayne played the male lead who had True Grit. In one scene, he rides toward 4 bad guys, not holding the reins, shooting two handed from the hip. That scene was shot at Maddie’s Meadow at Owl Creek Pass.
This high up, trees tend to be conifers. The pointed trees with a background of pointed spires of rock, make for dramatic settings.
Aspens grow in clusters up here.
When the aspens turn color in the fall, the blue sky, white bark and gold leaves are breathtaking.
