Sorrel River Ranch doesn’t just look like a scene from the movies – the area surrounding the ranch has actually been in the movies on many occasions throughout the years. Hollywood has been visiting Moab to find scenic landscapes and beautiful backdrops since 1949, resulting in some of the silver screen’s most epic and enduring images. From John Wayne westerns like Rio Grande and The Comancheros to action flicks like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Breakdown to 2010 Academy Award nominee 127 Hours, some of film’s most timeless moments have happened in the scenic hills surrounding Sorrel River Ranch.
