The past couple of days I have been revisiting my time I spent at Tombstone in October
I saved my favorite part for last.
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!
You can mail yourself a post card from the gift shop at boothill. It is kinda fun receiving a post card, sent from tombstone!
One thing I regret about my very quick trip to Tombstone, I only took five pictures of the OK Corral. This is only where one of the most historic gunfights occurred.
A slight fail.
Well here are my five shots, and if you ever go to Tombstone will you take a few more for me?
When I was in Tombstone, I discovered Tombstone’s Sarsparilla.
It was delicious. I love root beer, and this might have been better. If you are ever in Tombstone I recommend trying it.
Yesterday I told you how Tombstone Stole My Heart
Today, I am going to tell you about the Touristy part of Tombstone.
When I walked out of the court house, feeling completely educated on the lifestyle in the old west, I smacked into this…
At first I was stunned that there would be a little touristy section like this in Tombstone, but then I found myself walking around & exploring it for fun.
Overall, next time if I am every lucky enough to make it to Tombstone again, I will bypass it, but I can see why this would be fun for the kiddos.
Here are the pics, Enjoy!

Until Next Time
