After we left the rv park we took a side trip to a gem stone museium very colourfull old guy gave us all sorts of info on rocks.
After that on to tombstone what a great place most of the store owners dressed up the part of the old west,had lunch in a bar all decked out old western style should come back here with a group of people, stay in a motel what a party place!!!!
