Telluride offers a festival devoted to automotive horsepower this weekend. If you want the real thing, come to Ridgway. Today (Friday) through Sunday, the Ridgway Old West Fest celebrates the feisty, irrepressible spirit personified by actor John Wayne in his star turn as crusty, big-hearted U.S. Marshal J. “Rooster” Cogburn in the film “True Grit,” filmed in downtown Ridgway and the surrounding countryside.
