Cowboy Pickups, Yarnell Hill & Highway Heatwaves

May 19, 2013
  I've been studying old pickups driving down the road with a makeshift horse hauler rack on the back for a scene in The 66 Kid. Found some good reference in a certain old movie. It was filmed in Sedona, starring Glenn Ford and Henry Fonda. Can you name it?

Had a wonderful Sunday drive up Yarnell Hill this morning. Stopped at the Ranch House Cafe for a bite in Yarnell, then on to the Peeple's Valley School House for a Wild West talk. Full house, sold some books met some down home folks (rancher John Hays, a Yarnell descendent, sculptor Cynthia Rigden, Maynard Dixon collector Hermann Dixon) and on the way home witnessed some great highway heat waves on the horizon. Check it out.
