The movie set at Mescal is only about three miles from us as the crow flies and we can see it on the hill out the front door. It is on property belonging to the Double X Ranch and we trailer the horses there to go riding sometimes. I hadn't been up there in awhile so I took my little camera this past week when we went and got some pretty good pictures. This old wagon has definitely seen better days and sits beside the road near the north side of the movie set. They aren't filming anything at present and it doesn't get used a whole lot anymore but some of the movies that have been filmed there are Tombstone with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer, Tom Horn with Steve McQueen, the original Monte Walsh with Lee Marvin and Jack Palance, some of the Young Riders TV series, and the quirky, oddly entertaining South of Heaven, West of Hell with Dwight Yoakam, Vince Vaughn, Bridget Fonda and Billy Bob Thornton.
I will be sharing more pictures from our ride soon but in the meantime, I'm linking up with Madge for Weekly Top Shot and Nancy for Your Sunday Best.
