Manny P. here…

   I have come across the perfect Summer vacation idea if you are fans of the Old West. This five day event takes place in Kanab, Utah. Many motion pictures from Hollywood’s Golden Age were filmed here, including Stagecoach, Drums Along the Mohawk, My Friend Flicka, Union Pacific, Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, and Sergeants 3. Modern cinema includes Mackenna’s Gold, Jeremiah Johnson, The Outlaw Josie Wales, and Maverick  Also, television shows, such as The Lone Ranger, Have Gun — Will Travel, Death Valley Days, Branded, and F-Troop filmed episodes at the site. Here are some of the expansive details:

Expected actors set to spend treasured time with visitors include Dan Haggerty, Barry Corbin, Clint Walker (right), and Bruce Boxleitner.

   Leading up to the weekend event is an actual Wagon Train. The trip includes a seat in the wagon, meals, and evenings by a campfire. Imagine yourself stepping back in time, traveling by covered wagon down the same trails the pioneers, John Wayne, and others trekked in settling the West, and in all of those great Western movies… They start the trip with a chuck wagon supper at MacDonald Ranch, in the very spot where the Daniel Boone television series and other movies were filmed. Tuesday morning, they will leave the ranch and travel through the Grand Staircase National Monument passing by many famous cinematic locations, such as the Gunsmoke set.
