EXT. A SPLIT IN THE TRAIL – THE CHASE CONTINUES – DAY
The three men come thundering along a dusty trail to the place where it splits. The high road disappears up the side
of a ridge; the low road is really the bed of an arroyo. The three men exchange looks. Paden plunges into the arroyo.
Emmett shrugs to Jake, and the brothers follow Paden.
INTERCUTTING. The Posse splashes across the stream. The three fugitives twist their way through the crooked arroyo.
AT THE SPLIT IN THE TRAIL. Langston pulls his group to a halt. He looks at the tracks leading into the arroyo, and a
smile splits his face. He leads the Posse up the high road fast.
EXT. ARROYO – DAY
IN THE ARROYO. Paden and Emmett pull up, looking back at Jake, who has stopped at the last bend in the gully, watching their rear. Now he rides up to the others.
They spur their horses out of there.
EXT. MOUTH OF ARROYO/FLATLANDS – DAY
The three riders break out of the arroyo and exchange looks of glee on seeing the clear flatlands ahead. SHOTS ring out. They look over their shoulders to see Langston’s Posse, practically on top of them, pouring over the lip of a rise
and firing at will.
