Beautiful sunrise! Looks kind of like one of Trump’s nuclear explosions. Sorry, no politics allowed.
This morning around 7:30, we were headed straight west with the warm sun over our shoulders toward Tombstone, Arizona. Another beautiful partly sunny day and the highs to be around 65.
It’s only about 50 miles to Tombstone, so we should be there plenty early and have our breakfast when we arrive and find us a parking spot.
The drive from Bisbee to Tombstone was beautiful. Tombstone is down in the valley ahead of us under a clear blue sky.
Arrived in Tombstone around 10 A.M and found us a great Bus and RV free parking lot right next to Allen street. Still early and there is hardly anyone here, so Yuma and I decided to do our tour early and have breakfast later.
Yep. Not a soul here on Allen Street.
The Tombstone County Courthouse.
I think there are enough photos for one day.
See you later.
Told me what kind of dog he is but I forgot. I think it was an Australian Shepherd.
I have photos of the Tombstone Cemetery too, but will put those in tomorrow’s post.
I can't believe the whole town of Tombstone was deserted! We're the stores open? Love the stagecoaches! Looks like Yuma was able to make a new friend. ☺ Really wonderful pictures!ReplyDelete
Thanks Dolly. It was 8:30. A little early for tourists.ReplyDelete
We enjoyed Tombstone during our short visit in the area. Love the pictures. Yuma looks to be having fun!!ReplyDelete
Thank you. My sunrise doesn't compare to the ones you take, but it's a start. Yuma loves playing with dogs his size. That Fergie is just too little and mean.Delete
I like that cool ol Tombstone town! Looks like you were the only cowboy there! Love the blue skies. And I love you!❤️ReplyDelete
Thanks Sarah. Glad you and Jim are enjoying my journey. I was wearing my cowboy hat. Love you.Delete
Glad you enjoyed your short visit to Tombstone. Looks like they've added to it since we were there.ReplyDelete
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
Thanks. It was nice to be their early and miss the crowds. Made it easier to take pictures. The area I found the horse I had not seen on my previous trip. Not sure. If it is new or I missed it.Delete
Great pictures. Even when we have been there at night there are a few people walking around. Strange to see it with no one walking down the sidewalks.ReplyDelete
Thanks Deb. I guess the visitors to Tombstone are not early risers. It was great for taking pictures.Delete
Wow...you are so lucky! I've always wanted to visit Tombstone. Looks fantastic!ReplyDelete
Thanks Margie. It's a nice place. It is in a valley surrounded by mountains. Makes you think of the old days when cowboys spent days riding just to get there.Delete
Tombstone looks good - not sure if horses get a winter coat ? But the team of whites with red stagecoach looks like one has long almost wooly hair. Yuma likes to mix it up with the big dogs - so excited that he went airborne !! Cute.ReplyDelete
Thanks Moonfly. I did notice the stagecoach horses looked a little ragged with long hair. Did I get enough Yuma pics in for you? He loves to jump.Delete

What a nice morning with no crowds, surprising though. Beautiful pictures! Looks like a great visit!ReplyDelete
Thanks Shirley. It was nice being there early with no crowds on such a beautiful morning. Yuma and I enjoyed it. Hope you two are over your colds.Delete
That was a nice break being in Tombstone without the crowds of people that are so often milling about on Allen street. Hard to photographically capture the old western feeling and history of the town when people keep walking into the shots. We're over on the other side of the Dragoon Mountains northeast of you.ReplyDelete
I was glad I got there so early. I see you're making a visit to old Friends. Enjoy.Delete
Beautiful photos, Doug. We were there once. Also went up to Fort Huachuca, but I'm not sure it is open any more...ReplyDelete
Thanks Cheryl Ann. I may just head that way after taking care of a few things here in Tucson. Did you like the Fort Huachuca area?ReplyDelete
