Boulder and Westminster Exit from the South – Revisiting “The Shining” – Google Maps Redux Art

In the 8 a.m. section of The Shining, Dick flies to Denver from Miami. The Stapleton International Airport is now closed. In the film we see road shots of snow, the Boulder/Westminster exit and wreckage of a Mack truck and VW. I read that the film crew who shot at Glacier National Park was also shooting road scenes in Denver. If the shots of the Westminster/Boulder exit were made in Denver, the roads have changed greatly since then so there is no recognition factor.
