My favorite… yet creepy part about Tombstone

The past couple of days I have been revisiting my time I spent at Tombstone in October

I saved my favorite part for last.

Boothill Graveyard

I learned a few things, while I was exploring Boothill Graveyard.

1. Boothill is the highly common name, for the burial ground for gunslingers, as they literally “died with their boots on”

2. There is a similiar graveyard in South Dakota & Kansas, and I now know I must go, morbid I know.

3. Actual names on tombstones, are not common. I can’t tell you how many times I read China Man, Stranger, Unknown or Jewish Immigrant. Clearly they were not P.C in the old west. Times have changed.

Here are the pics from the day, sadly I have lost some of the pictures I took, and I am trying to locate them, hopefully they will turn up and I will add them on my facebook page, because believe me, you have to see these tombstones to believe it.

Here are the pics, enjoy!
