Geocache Description:

Cache is located about 15 miles from highway 550 near Owl Creek Pass. A good (but dusty and bumpy) dirt road will take you there in any vehicle. Traffic is light. Elevation 10,000’. Park in the lot located at N38deg 09.724’ W107deg 34.098’
Area may be closed due to winter snowfall.

True Grit/Chimney Rock cache is placed in a meadow which was used to film a scene in the movie “True Grit”. The scene is Rooster Cogburn challenging Ned Pepper and his men to “be prepared to meet your maker!” Rooster puts his horse’s reins in his mouth, draws his six shooter and his trusty Winchester rifle and charges toward Ned. You know the rest of the story. (the next time you watch the movie and the scene discribed above comes into play, look for Chimney Rock in the background)

The beautiful meadow is filled with wildflowers with a background of the spectacular Chimney Rock formation. Bring your camera! The cache is not far from the parking area. The coordinates should take right to the cache. The cache container is ½ gallon, clear plastic, with a blue lid.
