Just got back from my trip out west to see relatives in Phoenix.  We decided to go up to Sedona Arizona to do some sight seeing.
 We went up into Oak Creek Canyon and took some pictures of the filming locations of some classic Hollywood Westerns. 
The locations include Red Rock Crossing and Bell Rock. Approximately 50 Westerns were filmed here with some of the highlights being
 " The Last Wagon " with Richard Widmark, " 3:10 to Yuma " with Glenn Ford and Van Heflin and "Broken Arrow " with James Stewart.

Observations:  Its STUNNINGLY beautiful out there.  You CAN'T take a bad picture.  The terrain is just gorgeous.
 We rode up a old road that was used by film crews and some of the heights scared the beejeebus out of me. 
The movies don't do justice as to how high and steep this terrain is surrounding the valley. 
I garnered very much respect for the film crews and actors who filmed there. 
You got the steep terrain, animals and the high temperatures to deal with. 
The tour guide we had pointed out the exact locations of some of the shots that were used in the films.
The guide also said that most of the valley back during the 50s was barren of most of the trees and foilage that you see.
3:10 to Yuma was filmed on the bottom of the valley as shown in the top picture.  As far as the other locations go
I was particularly stunned by a high rock that Richard Widmark filmed on when he made " The Last Wagon".

Here is a link to the Westerns that were fimed there:  http://adayinthewest.com/sedona-info/sedona-movies/












EXTRA BONUS:  We also went to the Mammoth Mines at the Goldfield Gold mines outside Phoenix. 
This is the site of a former real gold mining town that had several mines around it.

Terrific pics!

I saw the other day a picture from a girl I knew who was in Sedona a couple of weeks ago. On the picture, she stands somewhere on the big rock at the center of your first pic: they're actually gigantic!

Thanx. :) Pictures cannot convey how huge and beautiful  that terrain is.  You have to see it. I can't wait to get back there.

I felt the same way when I was at The Grand Canyon, in Monument Valley and then Death Valley and Lonepine, last summer. The Southwest is very cool.

Spectacular!!!  Those are fabulous.  That was great how you presented those. 
Is it not amazing that even today, those locations are that wild, rugged and yet beautiful at the same time? 
These are truly locations that one has to see to believe. Just spectacular.  Thanx... :)
