Ray Plumlee's Comments :
Great place to visit. If ever you are in the Southern Arizona area I highly recommend visiting the City of Tombstone, Arizona.

When I visited I was staying in nearby Benson, Arizona which is only 25 minutes away. I knew that I would be able to go back more than once so I could savor this "Ghost Town" some more.

The weather was fantastic. It was a beautiful sunny day with the temperature in the high 70's. A great day for my day trip down to Tombstone. First thing I did was stop by "Boot Hill" and take some pictures of me around the Clanton and McLaury graves.

Then headed on into town. Walked all through the Allen Street which is blocked off from the traffic. Stopped by the Longhorn Restaurant for a late breakfast and had the Cowboy Breakfast (3 eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries toast and of course coffee).

I Then wandered down to the old "Bird Cage Theatre." It is the only building still decorated with the original furnishings, pictures, mirrors etc. from the 1880's. Complete with bullet holes throughout the theater.

They were putting on some skits in the middle of town, gunfights etc. and they had a man and a women dressed in 1880's attire with a hanging rope. So I stopped and got my picture taken with the noose around my neck with them. Heck I even got a death certificate certifying I was officially hanged by the Tombstone Vigilantes on 26 March 2006.


Here I am with the Clanton and McLaury Boys who were all killed at the Gunfight by Wyatt Earp, his Brothers and Doc Holiday at the OK Corral on 26 October 1881 in Tombstone, Arizona.

Tombstone, Arizona's Allen Street which is blocked off to all vehicle traffic, except for horse driven ones, is full of colorful Cowboys, Cowgirls and other western attired people.

This is the famous Bird Cage Theatre. It got it's name from the elevated boxes along both sides of the theater facing the stage. These Bird Cages are where the Lady's of the Night entertained their Cowboy friends.

After I had breakfast Allen Street woke up with several gunfights and other activities. Here I am being hanged by the Tombstone Vigilantes. I got a death certificate stating I was hanged on 26 March 2006 by the Tombstone Vigilantes. If you got to be hanged do you know of a prettier lady to be hanged by?

Speaking of a pretty lady. Not only was the town full of colorful Cowboys, but there was also some very nice lady scenery too.

Just one of several staged gun fights on Allen Street and elsewhere in Tombstone, Arizona. Photo opportunities abound.

And I have been to Tombstone, The Town Too Tough To Die before in 1950's and 1980's.

Traveling Webmasters Comments about his previous visit in 1950's and 1980's. :
First went to Tombstone when I was 10 or 12 years old with my parents. Later in 1983, when I was married, my family and I were making a (west coast to east coast) transfer from the USS McKee AS-41 home ported in San Diego, California to my next duty station the USS Holland, AS-32 home ported in Charleston South Carolina.

The one image that stands out to me today is up in the Boothill Graveyard is the one grave that had the foot (boot) sticking up out of the grave.
