Friday's Travels

Doin' my best to fake it until I make it...I'm better but by the time we drive and then explore plus wrestling with the frustration of intermittent internet connectivity...I can't get a posting done. As you all know, we left Apache Junction, AZ on Friday morning. Not wanting to test our limits, we only drove to Benson, AZ which was only about 150 miles. All was well, so we decided that would be a good opportunity to drive down and visit Tombstone.

The girls were obviously star-struck, meeting their first cowboy!

In addition to this great old stagecoach, you could also take a tour of the town in a covered wagon.

This is the main street of Tombstone. Three blocks lined with stores were closed to vehicle traffic, except for those that were horse-drawn of course.

I loved seeing the hitching posts lining the street alongside the covered wooden sidewalks.

You do remember the significance of Tombstone, right? It was the site of the "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral"...ah yes! Wyatt Earp. Doc Holliday. We bought some delicious home brewed sarsaparilla with  pictures of them and the other two Earp brothers on the label...quite a collector item we were assured.

Leaving Tombstone we paralleled the border for a while to check out this southern part of Arizona. There were mountains in the distance. I'm already really missing the sight of mountains on my horizon.

Here the San Pedro River is peacefully Meandering across the countryside...just like we are doing.

Since crossing into Texas on a rural highway an hour and a half ago, I've actually been able to upload photos and write this for Texas connectivity!!! We're driving into
