I had to go down to Tucson this Friday for work and I decided to go visit my friend Kevin who is down in Ft. Huachuca training to go to Kuwait. We went to see "The Dark Knight" on friday night and today (Sat) we decided to go see Tombstone; the famous town where Wyatt Earp and his brothers along with "Doc" Holliday confronted the McLaury's and the Clantons at the O.K. Coral. It was so much fun to see this old historic town with buildings fromt he era and many people dressed in time period clothing. Here are some of the pictures we took:
You can see the main road behind us where all the historic buildings are.
This is the site where the fight happened. They have statues to show the approximate placement of the key players when the gun fight broke out.
These "tour guides" (Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp) gave us the full story of what happened.
I was teaching Kevin how these things worked back then.
After eating lunch in the "Big Nose Kate's Saloon" we got to have some fun taking pictures with their props. This is the same saloon where the Earps and Holliday all hung out the night before the gunfight. It was fun to know they had been in there!
After a fun day in the "Old West" we decided it was time to ride out in the sunset... this was the best we could do!
