Default Fun in the High Country

Went up to the Eastern Sierra for a week. Did a little fishing and other fun stuff.
I thought this was cool. Remember the scene where Rooster and Mattie hide up int the rocks and ambush Ned Pepper when he is in the creek? Well, I found that spot.
Here is the dugout cabin that Glen Campell covers the chimney with his jacke and the horses from the movie.


Here is the spot now. Of course the set has been gone for over 40 years now. Nonetheless, what a cool feeling it was standing where the Duke stood in his cowboy gear. My boys were stoked too.


Drive down into my favorite canyon

Fishing with my best buds

Other scenes


Some of the fish



Very sorry to be home.

Very kewl, John! Thanks for sharing the pics.

Pretty awesome about the "True Grit" location. Doesn't look like it's changed much in 46 years.

Thanks. It was kind of astonishing when we realized we were looking at it. We are huge John Wayne fans and it was a real rush to be standing there.

That's F'ing cool! I was hoping when I read this thread title that it wouldn't be about a Chevrolet

I love True Grit though; both the original and the remake are good. That's real neat that you got to go out to where they filmed part of it!


I need to get out West again

Wow, that's cool. John Wayne was one of the greats for sure.
