Tombstone, Arizona

I am officially moved to Arizona, and one of the first things we did was drive to Tombstone.  It is a classic old west town.  You may know it from the famous film, Tombstone, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, or the site of the famous gunfight.   My husband loves that stuff, so it was a must see!

The O.K. Corral where they re-enact the gunfight daily.  Pretty cool to see.  If you want to read up on Tombstone, check out this site.

The view on the way from Tucson, beautiful.  It is about an hour and a half drive from Tucson.  Such a change from the driving on Oahu.

A sign in front of one of the saloons.

The "bad guys" in the re-enactment.  They didn't last long...

They were laying in the sun for so long, I felt really bad for them.  How do they do it everyday?  Long pants, coats, long sleeved shirts.  It was so hot!  Like 104 degrees hot.

The lawmen, walking the town's main street.

Talking trash before the re-enactment.

My husband, totally in his element.  I asked him to get on the saddle, but the rest is all him.  Woo HOOO!  Here is another site you can get more information on.  If you want to make it more of a full day, you can stop in Benson and Bisbee for some more Western flair.
