Part 3 of 3 on Sad Hill from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
The great Sad Hill standoff ring is no longer presently visible for the most part as vegetation has grown over the rocks of the once great stone circle. however, the rocks that do remain shine brightly in the sun, a reminder that they are not natural to this environment.

Tuco and Blondie standoff locations
Angel Eyes standoff location
The barren landscape of the circle indicates that many of the rocks are still buried beneath the grass.
Of course the most famous scene in the movie is the showdown between the three men as they compete for the gold. It was quite an experience to be able to stand at these locations, nearly 50 years after Eli, Lee, and Clint were there!

This is the spot where Angel Eyes goes down (rocks mark the edge of the ring)
And with that I have concluded the tour of Spain. Next week, I'll do a wrap up with a few more photos, and close the book on this incredible journey!
