If you watched Rio Bravo, you know this place - RX10M4

The thread about the Grand Canyon prompted me to look at some of my unprocessed Southwest images.

If you've watched Rio Bravo, Eldorado, or some other John Wayne films (or scores of other westerns), you know this peak in the Tucson Mountains.

The mountain looks like some sort of beast, with arched eyebrows just below the actual peak. The saguaro cactus in the foreground aren't props - they grow naturally in the area.

According to the Wikipedia article about Old Tucson Studios , it's supposed to have re-opened this past October. Travel hint: SE of OTS, on Kinney Road, Coyote Pause Cafe is the place for huevos rancheros in the morning!
