Spaghetti Western Locations
Continuing with locations from “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”. After Blondie and Tuco blow-up the Langstone bridge they awake the next morning to find both the Union and Confederate soldiers gone. Only corpses and discarded equipment litter what is left of both military camps. Blondie and Tuco cross the river and continue their trek to Sad Hill Cemetery where $200,000 in gold is buried. To get to the opposite side of the river you have to do what Clint and Eli did, wade the river. It’s best to do this in late summer when the river is at its lowest level. The area is completely changed since the film was made as pine trees and other vegetation have grown back and the scenery looks much different.
