We spent almost the entire day at Tombstone. Loved it. Lots of fun. Managed to get one of the few rainy days they have per year! Stopped at Boothill Cemetery first as it was on the way into town and it wasn't raining just yet. Some interesting headstones. Took the horse and carriage street tour, which gave us a history reminder and we could get our bearings. Then checked out the original Birdcage Theatre. Very cool old original theatre interior.

We drove a fire road shown on the map along the base ...

Buried here are outlaws with their victims, suicides, and hangings, legal and otherwise, along with the hardy citizens and refined element of Tombstone's first days.
