Tombstone Fun


While our daughter and her family were visiting we took a whirlwind trip to Tombstone. The boys hadn't been there in their memory time so they had a great time.

Saw a few friends and enjoyed the sites all anew through the eyes of the boys.



Performers before the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.



Boothill Cemetery 



Street scene. Corner location was once the famous Can Can Restaurant and, for a time,
 the Piggly Wiggly store. 


A quiet moment.

We got two cuttings from the Rose Tree Inn Museum. The Lady Banksea rose bush has been in Ripley's Believe It or Not and the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest rose bush in the world. We'll see how we do with cuttings in Washington and central Arizona.
