OK Corral Shoot-Out


Read this blog, or we meet at high noon to settle this!

Welcome Y’all to Tombstone, the true Wild West!


We continued to venture on down into the city of Tombstone for some wild history and gunfights. While visiting, we HAD to see the OK Corral and the famous re-enactment of the Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday gunfight. We actually stood in the same spot where the battle happened in 1881. It’s an eerie feeling standing on the same streets and imagining what it was like back then. They put on a great show, it was informative and funny at the same time. Thank goodness it captured our attention, because it was very COLD that day.


They also had some museums and the streets were blocked off and the buildings were done to look exactly as they did back in the 1880’s. The photographs around town of what it used to be like were splitting images of the town that stood before us. The store names were even kept the same and the characters from the gun battle roamed around the streets (and didn’t break character). Doc Holliday walked past the little one and tipped his hat saying, “Ma’am”….that made her day, she was thrilled! So much history there and not enough time to explore it all, but we got some fun photos! http://www.ok-corral.com/

Characters never broke “character” while wandering the streets of Tombstone. Man in black suit was Wyatt Earp!

Leaving Tombstone, this is the scenery from Tombstone to Bisbee. Minus the road, you can imagine what this trek was like on horseback in the 1880’s.
