Our Location: Empire Ranch, Sonoita, Arizona
A bit of a chilly start at 45F/7C approximately. The day warmed up nicely with a reading of 75F/24C approximately around 3 pm. We had plans this morning and yet we weren't really in a hurry and after breakfast took a leisurely drive to Tombstone.

We've visited once before but thought a repeat would be a good idea. We arrived around 9:30 am and enjoyed walking the streets and visiting a few shops. It was a very relaxed kind of day. We took in the gunfight at the OK Corral, which ended the same as last time and climbed aboard the stage coach for a town tour. Lunch at Big Nose Kate's and we called it a day. Riley enjoyed this visit much better than the last time, she had less anxiety and was a great deal more chatty.

We stopped at Hauchuca City (Wa-chew-ka) for some water and a drink for the Big Dog. While at the fuel pumps a very nice lady asked me if I actually did drive a dogsled. I explained, "No, I'm not a musher, I just call my truck the Dogsled." We chatted for a bit while I pumped fuel ($4.99 gal) and soon Riley and I were on our way back home to the Igloo.
Virgil, Wyatt Earp and Ike Clanton Looks a little Sam Elliot, don't ya think? Virgil Earp. Wyatt Earp.
Lots of photos today. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Doc Holiday, Virgil, Wyatt and Morgan Earp. The good guys, we cheered when they came in to the corral.
Our first Stage Coach ride. Room for more folks.
Until next time....

Take care, be safe,
It didn't look too crowded in Tombstone. It looked like a great day and like Riley was enjoying her ride!ReplyDelete
It was the perfect day, not too hot, not too crowded, not to loud. Riley had a great time. Maybe if we go back another year she want to drive the stage coach. hahaDelete
Always enjoy Tombstone. So neat to see a picture of Riley with all those famous cowboys. Some told me if you look closely you can see a Buffalo in that picture of the mountains. Enjoy these beautiful times.ReplyDelete
She had a wonderful day and didn’t hesitate to step in for a photo. I will have to look for the buffalo.Delete
Tombstone was a favorite place for us to visit. Of course, Big Nose Kate's was the place to go for something to eat.ReplyDelete
We enjoyed Kate’s too. We often think of you and George, we first met you at Quail Ridge just down the highway.Delete
Ahhhh I see you met "the Boys". The Cowboys aren't too shabby either!! Great fun ... I'm glad Riley enjoyed the visit. If you like ice cream, check out the shop in town ... it's yummy!!ReplyDelete
The Boys are definitely not too shabby. The ice cream shop was closed when we walked past.Delete
