Defiance, NM

June 05, 2020

There is not much to Defiance. There is no sign and it's hard to find. I'm not sure I have ever found it, although I have asked the locals where it is. They all seem to know, but have a hard time telling it to me.

The 1950 Kirk Douglas movie Ace in the Hole was filmed in this area.
