Top Movie Locations to See - Ridgeway, Colorado
If you are a John Wayne fan like I am, you'll enjoy this video sent by a friend. Shot on location around Ridgeway, Colorado in the San Juan Mountains, the movie True Grit was one of John Wayne's most memorable as Marshall Reuben J. 'Rooster' Cogburn. He reprised the role again six years later.
The video shows scenes where the movie was filmed around the picturesque town of Ridgeway in the late 1960s and compares to the same locations today. We visited the San Juan Mountains near there a few years ago (very scenic!), and plan to update our segment on in the near future. Be sure take the Durango & Silverton RR when in Durango (hear it now - need Real Audio). For our upcoming trip to Colorado, we'll be headed towards the Rocky Mountain National Park, Boulder, and Denver areas. We'll keep you posted..
