Today, the three of us headed for Old Tombstone. As we headed out of the RV park, I took a picture of the Dragoon Mountains straight east of us. Can you see the lamb on the side of the Dragoon Mountain?
Our next stop was the Rose Tree Hotel. The gentleman welcomed Fergie, so in we went. Turned out to be very interesting. There was a lot of history of Tombstone within those walls. There is a rose tree in the back patio that was planted in 1886 and came from Scotland.
We then walked down the boardwalks of Allen Street, where all the restored old buildings of Tombstone are located.

Tombstone is interesting for a one time visit, but it has a flavor of tourism, so you don’t really get the feel of an “old western town”. However, the buildings are authentic and worth the walk down Allen Street.
Returned to the motorhome for lunch and rested awhile. Then Dolly and Fergie did laundry while I headed out down Charleston Road to find the ghost towns of Millville and Charleston on the San Pedro River south of Tombstone. Will save this adventure till tomorrow.
See you later.
