I am from Austria and a frequent US - traveller and hiker. Usually we go to Utah but the next time my wife and myself would like to explore a little bit of Texas (before or after heading to Utah).
We recently saw the movie "The three Burials of Melquiades Estrada". Great movie, great characters, and especially great landscape!
I was particularly fascinated by the area where Tommy Lee Jones and that Border patrol guy ride along on the edge of a rim and one of the horses falls to death. I googled a lot but couldn´t find out for sure where that rim is supposed to be. My guess would probably be the "South Rim".
Is that correct? If not where is that spot located?
Is the trail as narrow as shown in the movie or did they make it look more dramatic as it is with some special effects or whatever?
And does somebody also know where the shot was taken where Dwight Yoakam aims at Tommy Lee Jones before deciding not to shoot at him?
