Tombstone AZ–Tombstone Courthouse State Historical Park and The Shootout at the OK Corral

We knew as soon as we woke up, and heard the straps on the window awning humming,
that we would not be driving up Mt Lemmon as planned. . .
if it’s this windy here. . .can’t imagine what it would be like on the mountain. . .

so. . .reboot. . .literally. . .

Tombstone AZ

Tombstone is way high on Dave’s list of must sees. . .
so off we go. . .about 60 miles away. . .

Main Street - Tombstone

what to say. . .what to say. . .it’s a Western Town. . .
you know. . .one of those Tourist _ _ _ _ Towns. . .
which we sort of knew going in. . .but even more so than we expected. . .

Sorry Babe. . .at least you got to see it. . .right?

Tombstone Courthouse

to be fair. . .there really is a lot of history to be found in the area. . .
The Court House is on a part of the Tombstone State Historical Park. . .
and contains a fairly extensive museum on the inside. . .

Tombstone Courthouse

you know Dave loves a good museum. . .

Tombstone Courthouse  Tombstone Courthouse

two of my favorite things. . .

Tombstone Courthouse

I told you, and told you about putting all that
funny stuff on  FaceBook every morning. . .

Tombstone Courthouse

off to the (newly reconstructed) gallows you go. . .

The Shootout at the OK Corral

time for the serious stuff. . .

The Shootout at the OK Corral

the Shoot Out at the OK Corral. . .
I mean. . .anyone who’s ever watched Westerns
knows about the shootout at the OK Corral. . .right?

Boot Hill

and. . .last stop. . .Boot Hill. . .
every western town is required to have a Boot Hill. . .

Dragoon Mountains as viewed from Boot Hill

there was a beautiful view of what I believe are the Dragoon Mountains
as viewed from Boot Hill. . .

and that was it. . .it really was a fun day to be out and about. . .
and we saved another $15 with our Tucson Passport Savings book,
the weather warmed up, and turned out lovely. . .

It reminded me of taking our boys to Dodge City Kansas
when they were about 12 or so. . .they loved it. . .
and I guarantee. . .any child would love Tombstone just as much. . .

Not sure what our plans are for tomorrow,
so check back in . . .okay!

’til then,

Janice and Dave
