Tombstone

As promised, many moons ago, here is the pictures from our trip to Tombstone AZ!

Some of the pictures I won’t be able to show, a lot were from the Birdcage theater where we took the tour, and there were signs all over asking you not to post pictures on social media, which I understand since it was a paid tour. But that means I can only show about half of the pics :/ That is still quite a few so, onward!

The drive to Tombstone, while very long (about 4 hours for us), was really pretty. I love the mountains 🙂

The Birdcage theater was very cool, so much to check out and a lot of the history of the place. They have a tour you can take, with or without a guide, and if we go again we will probably get a guided tour, because even though there is some information on the items as you look at them, I think there is probably more to know than what they put on the little display cards.

While a lot of what you see is fake/recreated, they are very detailed and original looking! They even have ghost tours you can take, but since we had a long drive back, we decided to skip that. Maybe next time!

We watched the OK Corral re-enactment, which was a bit more comedy than we thought it would be, but it was fun and the actors were great. There are buildings that you can walk through to see pictures and read about the history of the town and it’s occupants, as well as stables and relics outside you can check out too. When we went through it was pretty dark out so a lot of the pictures turned out a bit dark or weird looking. If you ever get a chance t check out Tombstone, go early. We got a late start and didn’t get a chance to see everything we wanted to.

The blacksmith shop was one of my favorite places to check out. I love the details of the branding letters, and the metal roses were awesome! And the blacksmith has a great sense of humor, the redneck doorbell made us laugh 😛

Tombstone is dog friendly, and Waffles was allowed to go with us on the Birdcage theater tour, as long as we kept her on the heavy black mats on the floor. We definietly apprecaited it since it was pretty cold out and we didn’t want to leave her in the car. Plus, she loves to be included, and how can you say no to that face?!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!
