Way Back When

I have some pictures to share form Steve's parent's visit. I am only three weeks behind! While they were here, in between their fixing the shed and installing a programmable thermostat, we took a day trip to Bisbee and Tombstone.

Bisbee is an old mining town. A lot of the houses were miners shacks back in the day. Some still look like they have not changed in 100 years. Others are remodeled and are going for about $300K. AZ real estate is ridiculous. Here are some Bisbee sights.
Before we left , we stopped at the Copper Queen Branch open pit mine. They have a mine tour of the underground workings, but not everyone was up for that. Still, the open pit was pretty cool.On our way back, we stopped in Tombstone. We had driven through before, and thought it was lame. Steve's mom really wanted to stop, and we are glad we did. Apparently, we weren't driving through the right part before. There is a whole street that is blocked from traffic so that stage coaches and horses can use it. Every where you look there are people in period costumes (even kids!) doing stuff like shopping, drinking beer (can you believe that is a job!), having conversations, hanging out. It was kind of craptacular because it was all so fake, but it wasn't fake at the same time because most of the buildings were from the 1800's. Worth going for some entertainment. While we were there we drank some beer.

And saw a posse.
